FOR INDIVIDUALS ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM
We are proud to offer a social skills training program for children, adolescents, and adults on the autism spectrum. The program will include course instruction on social skills. In addition to course instruction, participants will be encouraged to network with peers by participating in role-play scenarios and behavioral rehearsal exercises with other members during group. In order to reinforce social skills learned in the group, members will be asked to complete homework assignments that involve performing a social task (eg. calling peer, scheduling a meeting, ordering food, etc.). A pre and post test will be administered to track progress. This program is facilitated by our autism specialist Frank Guastella, LMSW.
The benefits of our program include:
- Understanding social cues
- Improved communication skills
- Friendship building
- Regulation and awareness of emotions
- Improved coping skills
