Fiction With Friends - social skills through creativity, imagination and drama

Write, create and record an original story in this fun online social therapy group that brings a small group of children together via Zoom to work on a joint project.

View the Gateways Safeguarding Children brochure.

Across six sessions children aged 7-11 will use social thinking concepts such as:

  • The group plan,
  • Hidden rules – expected and unexpected behaviours,
  • Flexible and stuck thinking,
  • Sharing an imagination.

Children will get to know one another while being guided through story-telling, writing and illustrating a book – with a whole lot of games and fun in-between.

Sessions will be made up of three children and an Occupational Therapist who will guide them through the process.

In the final week, the group will work together to bring the story to life in a recording. Each participant will also receive physical copy of the book to keep.

Drama, creativity, imagination and fun combine to deliver valuable social skills in this exciting program.

You can watch a recording of Will, Kye and Felix’s story from the most recent program here.
