Social Skills Groups


Many individuals with autism have difficulties in social situations. Some may have trouble picking up on nuances like sarcasm or idioms, others may struggle to engage in back-and-forth conversations, and more may just have a hard time developing friendships. Our Social Skills Groups teach children and teens with autism valuable social skills using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis, while also giving them an opportunity to practice their social skills with one another.
