The Secret Agent Society (SAS) Small Group Program is for children aged 8 to 12 years.

It’s a world-leading approach to structured learning for children with social and emotional goals.

It was first developed for autistic children, but it has been proven successful for children with a range of diagnostic and neurodiverse profiles.

SAS Small Group Program Components

secret agent societySAS Small Group is a multi-component program that up-skills and empowers not only children, but also the parents and teachers who support them.

The SAS Program is run over a 10-week term, led by trained SAS facilitators.

The program consists of:

Cadet Club Meetings

Cadet Club Meetings are held as either 11x90min sessions, inclusive of 2 booster sessions. The first 9 (if 90min) sessions are typically delivered weekly with the remaining booster sessions spread out over a six-month period.

Parent Group Meetings

Prior to starting with Cadets, the first Parent Group Meeting involves a 2-hour parent information session. This is followed by 11x30min group meetings over the course of the program.

Parent Group Meetings are an important component of the program’s success, providing an opportunity to advise and support parents on the content being learnt in Cadet Club Meetings and how to practice these skills in real life.

Parent meetings are typically held after each Cadet Club Meeting.

School Support

Teachers are updated on the skills and content Cadets are learning each week, and provided guidance on how they can support the application of skills in the classroom and playground.

This occurs through providing a series of SAS Teacher Tip Sheets, access to the child’s Skill Tracker, teacher consultation, school visits, and an optional school staff presentation.

The SAS Small Group Program is mapped to the Australian National Curriculum and is often written into children’s individual learning plans to assist teachers to meet the social-emotional goals of their students.

Missions and Mission Journal

Between each Cadet Club Meeting, children participate in weekly tasks and ‘missions’, including playing online gamified learning, skills practice activities in day-to-day life and completion of a reflection journal.

Skill Tracker

This short-term daily motivation tool is used to encourage Cadets to practice their SAS skills at home and school, aligned with their progression through the program.

Gadget Pack

Espionage-themed gadgets and Skill Codes are incrementally introduced throughout the program in line with the evidence-based program structure.

Assessment Measures

A combination of questionnaire booklets, an observational assessment tool, computer game performance and Skill Tracker progress provides valuable information to guide areas of focus for each individual child as well as providing easy, comprehensive and multi-source outcome reporting.

Automated assessment is available for SAS Facilitators to streamline intake and reporting processes.
