At the Social Learning Studio, we have a passion for the development of social skills across the lifespan. We specialise in social skills group programs, professional development for schools and organisations and individual counselling.
Connie Malatsis is the Principal Psychologist at The Social Learning Studio. She is also the author of 'The Friendship Saver Program' (a research based social skills program for mainstream classrooms), 'Ahhh Cards' (a communication support resource for children with behavioural difficulties), and has developed and deliveres a range of themed social skills programs for children with Pervasive Developmental Disorders such as Asperger's Syndrome.
Social skills groups within the clinic are designed for high functioning children on the autism spectrum, the shy, the high tempered, the lonely, the bullied, the bully, and the bored.
The clinic is also very fortunate to have Kevin O'Neill (consulting psychologist) as an associate of The Social Learning Studio. Kevin provides counselling, parenting strategies, couples mediation, and assessments for people on the Autism Spectrum. Kevin has a particular interest in supporting adults and adolescents on the spectrum in their lives: home and work.
