Private Pay, $600.00/3 week Program

Encouraging Connections is a 3 week program for 14-19 year olds adapted with permission from the PEERS Program.

This is a discussion-based group program that helps to encourage strong social comprehension skills. This engaging program helps develop the ability to share and take turns in a group. In each meeting a different core topic from the PEERS Program will be presented and discussed. Topics include how to choose friends, make small talk, how to “trade information and the nuances of conversation”, how to use humor, and handling teasing and embarrassing feedback.

The individual must have higher cognition and be able to communicate either verbally or with a communication device. It is not appropriate for all individuals on the autism spectrum.

This group will be facilitated by a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and life & career coach.

They are a NEON-approved provider.
