What’s The Buzz is a social skills and emotional literacy program for children of  all ages, which supports them to develop a variety of essential interpersonal skills, stimulated by the experiences of a character called Archie.

In each lesson, the children help Archie solve the very same social dilemmas that occur in their everyday lives. As they do this, through activity, discussion, role-play, games, puzzles and quizzes, they learn how-to express feelings and become a more positive problem solver.

What’s The Buzz programs run for 18 weeks across two school terms.

During the 18 weeks the program covers:

Meeting people and discovering differences, Joining in, Sharing and Taking Turns, Cooperation, Waiting, Making it better, Winning and losing – ‘gracefully’, Fact of opinion: staying friendly over different ideas, Working with feelings, Angry feelings, Building healthy bodies, happy minds and steady feelings, honesty – ‘telling the truth’, Saying, “No”, Empathy, Worry – knowing about it, and dealing with it, and then ime to say goodbye!

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 $1163.88

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 What’s The Buzz program will be held at the Port Adelaide clinic in 2022, at a date and time yet to be scheduled.
