Secret Agent Society (SAS) Programme
The Secret Agent Society (SAS) is an espionage themed, multimedia intervention programme.
We are currently fundraising to ensure the SAS programme can continue to help Children between 8 – 12 years old with Autism Spectrum Disorder, anxiety disorders, severe emotional/behavioural disturbance and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The SAS programme uses an evidence based curriculum to improve children’s mental health and well- being. It teaches children to recognise and manage their own feelings, cope with change, detect other peoples’ emotions, talk and play with others and deal with bullying. Developed by Australian Clinical Psychologist Rene Beaumont in 2008, SAS has gained worldwide recognition for the benefits experienced by the children who have attended the programme.
The kernel of success of the SAS program is the coordinated, collaborative approach between children, parents, teachers and clinicians. Teacher tip sheets, home missions and daily skills tracker cards help to generalise children’s learning outcomes into real life experience
