Individual Child Social Emotional Classes
The Individual Child Social Emotional Classes are for children aged 2 to 6 years old. The sessions run for 45 mins with your child and the Director of Thriving Minds Education. During the individual classes, there are a variety of games and activities that your child can choose to play. The selection of games and activities are carefully selected depending on what skills would be beneficial for your child to focus on. To determine what skills your child would benefit from learning there is an initial one hour consult and developmental screening with at least one parent or guardian and your child.
The main skills that are taught include;
- Building resilience
- Executive function skills (working memory, inhibitory control, mental flexibility)
- Identifying their feelings as well as identifying feelings in others
- Emotional regulation
Social-emotional health: look to ASQ:SE-2 for truly accurate screening.
"Early identification of social-emotional challenges can make all the difference to a young child. The proof is undeniable: the earlier a behavioral concern is identified, the greater the chance a child has for reaching his or her full potential in life. This is the driving force behind Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ:SE-2™)—a parent-completed, highly reliable system focused solely on social and emotional development in young children. Accurately identifying behavior through ASQ:SE-2 paves the way for next steps—further assessment, specialized intervention or ongoing monitoring, for examples—to help children reach their fullest potential during their most formative early years."
