About

Dandelion Kids offer social learning groups for children on the autism spectrum (low support needs / aspergers / high functioning) in Melbourne’s west.

Groups of 3-6 meet weekly to have fun, play and build on their social and emotional learning. Classes focus on developing social skills, relationship building, appropriate play, fostering friendships and reading non verbal social cues. The sessions utilise a variety of methods to achieve the group goals including: discussion, role play, social stories, games and craft. We use Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking® vocabulary and methodology. Classes run for 45-50 minutes with a 5-10 minute re-cap for parents at the end of each session so families can follow up at home.

Session Times: 55 minutes on Mondays during school terms.
Location: Springside Community Centre Caroline Springs
Cost: $32 per session payable in advance by month or full term

Boys 6-9 years 4.30-5.25
Girls 8-12 years 5.30-6.25
