Our Programs.

The Social Play Academy currently offers two distinct social skills programs for kids and teenagers:

The Dragons of the Spectrum

The Alliance of Dragons

​​Each group has been developed around unique gaming formats, while focusing on different age-relevant socio-emotional skills.

The Dragons of the Spectrum

The Dragons of the Spectrum (DOTS) Social Skills Program utilises an original tabletop role-playing game to teach kids important social skills.

Set in a fantasy universe, group members create characters, defeat enemies, learn important skills, and use these skills on challenging adventures.

The Alliance of Dragons

The Alliance of Dragons (AOD) Social Skills Program has been developed around an original "wargame" to develop complex social and relational skills.
Set in the same fantasy universe, group members  build, earn and paint armies, and engage in cooperative and competitive "battle scenarios".

Future Programs

All programs run by the Social Play Academy are designed to facilitate ongoing, long-lasting social exposure.

​Once group members have completed the DOTS and AOD programs, they will be able to go on adventures (DOTS) and complete their own battle scenarios (AOD) against their friends, family, or group mates. Further social skill development is also planned through the Social Play Academy, by way of one 'expansion' group - the Dragons of the Spectrum PLUS program, and "open" groups.

Open Groups

For those unable to organise or run their own adventures/battle scenarios, open groups will provide flexible sessions, where games can be run with the support of a group facilitator.
