The Friendship Saver Program

Evidence-based Social Skills Program for Classrooms.

Research with the University of Melbourne (pending publication) demonstrated that The Friendship Saver Program significantly improved children's social information processing skills and behaviours, as formally assessed in 5 Australian schools.  

More recently, two 2018 and 2019 studies demonstrated significant gains in student engagement, student social problem solving, and teacher's understanding and confidence for teaching social skills in classrooms.

The Friendship Saver Program is currently delivered in classrooms throughout Australia and the UK.  Classrooms are co-educational, single sex, and at-risk populations.  This program is designed for middle primary school-age children.

Working in Partnership with Schools to

Measure Program Impact

The two forms below are for schools that have chosen to participate in Pre- and Post- Intervention Data Collection so that they will acquire formal results on the impact of the program in their school.


The first form is to acquire data about at-risk students (names not recorded). The second form is about educator capacity building. Both forms are to be completed by teachers delivering the program in their classroom.


Thank you so much for participating.  

Form 1 - At-Risk Student Impact Measure

INSTRUCTIONS


Please complete the form below four times, each time referencing a different at-risk students.  This should take 4-5 minutes per student to complete.


Please make a note of the four students that you input for the pre-intervention data, and please complete the form again for those same four students at post-intervention (after the full program is delivered in your classroom).


For most valid post-intervention data, it is ideal to complete this form 2 weeks after finishing the program.
