Unlocking the secrets of friendship

Secret Agent Society (SAS) Small Group Program is designed for children aged 8 to 12 years who have social or emotional challenges, those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anger management difficulties, and undiagnosed range of social and emotional difficulties.

This evidence-based program is one of the most successful of its kind in the world, providing children with the tools and skills to change their everyday lives by making friends, and feeling happier, calmer and braver.

The SAS Small Group Program has a fun detective theme and taps into kids’ love of gaming. The program transforms tedious tasks with interactive award-winning resources, including: 

  • An animated ‘secret agent’ computer game 
  • Helpful Thought Missile action game 
  • Therapeutic Challenger board game 
  • Secret Message Transmission Device game

 

What does this program involve?

  • 9 small-group weekly club meetings plus 2 follow-up booster sessions for children
  • 8 hours of parent sessions (includes parent information session) over the period of 2 months
  • Weekly missions and teacher tip sheets, SAS Computer Game, and Skill Tracker System to practise skills at home and school

    Parents play a significant role in the program and need to commit to attending group parent sessions and to oversee their child practising the computer game at home.
