Event Details

Autism Ontario & Social Scaffolds Present…




This program is a 14-week evidence-based social skills training for motivated teens who are interested in learning new ways of making and keeping friends.

During each group session, teens are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during socialization activities.

Parents attend separate sessions at the same time and are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends.

PEERS® has been shown to be extremely successful for teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD).


Teens will learn how to:

• Use appropriate conversational skills

• Use humour appropriately

• Use electronic communication

• Enter & exit conversations

• Be a good host during get-togethers

• Be a good sport

• Handle arguments and disagreements

• Change a bad reputation

• Handle rumours and gossip

• Handle rejection, teasing and bullying


Cost is $300.00 per Teen


*Please note that individual assessments and in person interviews will be done to ensure that each teen participating meets the requirements. Registration does not guarantee a place in the group.
