All groups recommended by WHR Allied Health in this document are facilitated by Occupational Therapists and require confirmed payment prior to participating.

This program can be applied for all ages, however, has mostly been applied by WHR Allied Health for clients 14 years and above.  The Warrior Project is an anxiety management and social skill program developed by ‘The Little Black Duck.’ It looks at the individual as a whole and puts social skill development secondary to anxiety management and sensory development. It has been beneficial as an alternative to Secret Agent Society (SAS) for older clients and those who do not have a caregiver that can commit to the input required of the SAS social skills program. It utilises a journal and ‘sensory diet’ approach during sessions to support participants maintain focus and practice skills they are learning for optimum engagement.

This program can also be utilised as a one on one therapeutic intervention for young people who require significantly more assistance to learn the skills required to gain most benefit from the program. In this instance requesting individual quote for clients will be required and depend on their circumstances. This can be beneficial for children requiring significant supports for social and emotional skills development but do not have a consistent caregiver to support them and their participation. Some children may have other co-morbidities that prevent their attendance in a group setting but will benefit from the skills developed by participating in the program.
