The middle and high school years are a challenge for everyone, as relationships move from the playground to relationship-based friendships that depend on reading social cues, communication, and emotional reciprocity, all things that can be difficult for someone who lives with autism and other developmental disabilities.

WHAT TO EXPECT
By being a member of this group, participants will:

  • Reinforce social skills, like turn-taking and showing interest in others’ ideas.
  • Have fun together by participating in social activities through a virtual format.
  • Interact in a pleasant environment where individuals can share their interests.
  • Respect the differences and similarities between other individuals.
  • Develop friendships that will hopefully continue outside of the Club.

The Club is not considered a therapy group and is not equipped for that purpose. It is only intended to provide an opportunity for connections and fun interactions among individuals of a similar age. The Teen Social Club is free and limited to 15 participants who have strong verbal abilities.
