Social Skills Groups

Children’s Autism Center provides social skills groups to learners between the ages of 3-21. Social Skills Groups use evidence-based curricula that are age/developmentally appropriate. Children’s Autism Center is proud to present the first evidence-based protocol for teaching social skills. We regularly host three different  programs for the following age groups:

Friendship Group for Elementary age children ages 7-10

PEERS© Adolescents Group for Middle and High school-age students

PEERS© Young Adults Group for ages 18 – 35

Friendship Group

Children’s Friendship Training is a 12-week evidence-based social skills intervention for elementary age children who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. Please click here for more information on the Friendship Group and how to register.

PEERS® for Young Adults

Groups meet once or twice per week, depending on the group. Learners will participate in fun, interactive activities both in the Center and in the community that enable the practice of targeted skills.

Groups can be a blend of typical peers and targeted learners.

Typical peers are utilized during group times to model and assist in learning in a group environment. Social skills group fees are billable through some health insurance plans and also by private pay.
