Children’s Friendship Training is an evidence-based, group-format, parent-assisted social skills intervention for children ages 7 – 12 with ASD.


It has been proven effective with verbal children who have high-functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome.  This program was developed at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where it has been used and studied for over 20 years with more than 1,000 families.

Fees for this program are $100.00 per child. 

Monarch House will conduct the pre-screening for children that register for this program to ensure suitability.  They will collect the $100 program fees from families who successfully meet t
he eligibility requirements.

  • how to be a good host on a play date,

General FAQ

1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's all.

2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?
No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.

3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?
Most of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.

4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?
No.  While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
