Social Skills and Emotion Regulation Skills Group

Secret Agent Society is an award-winning, evidence-based social skills training program for 8- to 12-year-old children. The 10-week group program features a computer game and other spy-themed games and activities that teach kids how to feel happier, calmer, and braver and to make friends and keep them. In addition to weekly child ‘club meetings,’ parents attend weekly briefing sessions to help upskill and empower them in how to support their children to put the skills that they are learning in the program into action in daily life. The group lasts 10 weeks, plus a 3-month and 6-month booster session. 

Who: 8- to 12-year-old children with anxiety disorders, ADHD, or high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder and their parents
