The Daisy Program is a version of our original Well Girls program, but specifically designed for girls with a dual diagnosis of both autism and intellectual or cognitive disability.

Each session contains a combination of warm up activities, educational component, and practical
activities. The activities for each session will be discussed with the group and put up on a visual schedule at the start of each session.

Female health and wellbeing is a diverse topic – there are many wellbeing considerations that are unique to females in the pre-teen age group and impact how we live our lives.

 

In WELL Girls Daisy we present this information in a developmentally appropriate manner, which supports girls with dual diagnosis of both autism intellectual or cognitive disability to learn at their own pace, and in their own way. The subjects we cover include:

  • menstruation and pelvic health – understanding and functionally managing periods and building good toileting and pelvic health habits for life,
  • body development and personal hygiene – What’s happening to my body and why? How do I care for it?
  • hormonal changes of puberty – and how these affect us physically and emotionally at this time of life.
  • big feelings and how to manage them
  • navigating friendships

The Well Girls Daisy Program is a personal life skills program for girls aged 8-12 with a dual diagnosis of autism and intellectual disability.

    The first step to joining this program is by filling out the group program application form here. Once completed please email this form to groups@bloomwellbeing.com.au

    All new clients to Bloom Wellbeing will need to complete a 30 minute Group Program Screening Interview with our Group Program Coordinator prior to enrolling in a program. This ensures we place the client in the correct program to see them flourish. The Screening Interview costs $43.69 and is claimable under NDIS. Ideally, this would be completed with yourself, the parent/guardian.

    Appointments can be booked online here, please put in the comments if it will be in person, over the phone or zoom. Or alternatively you can call the clinic on (08) 7228 0248

    The full cost of this program is $792.04.

    A $43.39 screening consult fee is also payable for new clients only.

    Group costs may be claimable under your NDIS plan, providing the group meets your NDIS plan goals. This will be covered in your screening interview, if you want more information.

    Please note: Agency managed NDIS clients will not be able to claim the cost of this program on their NDIS plan, as we are not a registered NDIS provider.

    Our next Well Girls Daisy program will be held at the Port Adelaide clinic;

    Term 4 – Wednesday 13th October to Wednesday 15th December.
