#FriendshipGoals: Practicing the Art of Making Friends
This interactive social skills group is modeled after the PEERS curriculum and is for high school students with ASD (autism spectrum disorder) or other social challenges. In-class and community-based instruction provides an opportunity to learn and practice important social skills. To promote day-to-day application of the skills learned in this program, social coaches are required to participate in the program alongside each student. A social coach may be a family member, counselor, or any other person involved in the student’s social life. Each week during the program the students will meet both together and separately from the social coaches, each learning relevant skills to complement each other.
