The Autism Project’s Social Groups are peer groups designed to strengthen the social interaction & communication skills of children, teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorders.
Teaching social skills to children with autism is an area of treatment that is continuously evolving. At the Autism Project, we offer group-based social skills programs designed to strengthen the communication skills and social interaction abilities of children, teens and young adults diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
Our organization believes that participants will learn through their positive experiences, and we provide a safe environment to encourage active participation and practice social skills, complete with supports to promote success and independence, such as:
- Built in structures
- Visuals to promote positive communication
- Visuals to enhance social participation
- Incorporated interests and themes
- Working in and respecting Autism Time
- Giving choices
We offer a variety of program options that appeal to a range of interests, ability levels and age groups.
