Social Skills Groups

During the parent support meetings, simultaneous social skills programs are offered for those with autism ages 4-adult, and are staffed by autism professionals and community volunteers. These groups include our Teen Social Skills Group for those with Asperger’s/High Functioning Autism, Middle School Groups for tweens with Asperger’s/Autism, Sibling Social Group (ages 5-12) and an Adult Social Skills Group for those ages 18 and up with Asperger's or high-functioning autism who are out of high school. Childcare is also offered for siblings under age 4.

The first Thursday of each month social skills groups are offered during the parent meetings free of charge for ages 4 and up. On the second Thursday a free social skills group is offered for adults ages 18 and up who are out of high school.

Note that this group does not meet on Thursdays during the summer months.
