PEERS - Social Skills Training

  Teens with high functioning ASD, in grades 8-12 are invited to this 12-week evidence-based social skills workshop. 


PEERS (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills) is geared towards motivated high functioning teens who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends.


During each group session adolescents are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during socialization activities (e.g. playing sports, board games, etc.).


During the course of this 12 week program, children will learn:

  • conversational skills,
  • how to make a good first impression,
  • how to “play detective” to find common interests,
  • how to join a group of kids at play,
  • how to handle rejection, teasing and bullying,
  • how to be a good host on a play date,
  • how to be a good winner,
  • how to be a good sport,
  • and how to show respect towards adults.


Regular attendance is imperative.



Parent participation is required at each session.  Parents are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments.


Open to:

- Teens (Grades 8-12)

- And with high functioning ASD


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.

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.
