Children and adults on the autism spectrum commonly have difficulty with communication, social interactions and restricted, repetitive behaviors. This often makes it difficult for these individuals to integrate themselves into accepted social practises, commonly resulting in feelings of isolation.
The Secret Agent Society
The Secret Agent Society is a program that aims to promote resilience within autistic children through exploring ways to stay calm, make and keep friends, work in teams, solve problems, prevent and manage bullying, achieve their individual goals and empower them to use their diverse strengths and interests. The Secret Agent Society does this by using engaging, spy-themed resources and fun, inclusive practises that are part of an award-winning, evidenced-based learning curriculum. It equips children who graduate from the program with the skills to feel happier, calmer and braver in their lives.
