CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIP TRAINING

Children’s Friendship Training is an evidence-based, group-format, parent-assisted social skills intervention for children ages 9 – 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
Fees for this program are $150.00 per child.
TIPES will conduct the pre-screening for children that register for this program to ensure suitability. We will collect fees from families who successfully meet the eligibility requirements. We will be taking between 10-12 kids for this group. Registration does not mean all familie will be eligible.

During the course of this 10 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
  • each session will be followed by half an hour of improv theatre where participants will practice the skills just learned

Open to:

- Children between the ages of 9-12 year old

- And with high functioning ASD, who are motivated to attend

Dates:

This is a 10-week program and will be held on Wednesday evenings from mid-March -May, 2019. Specific Start dates and times TBD.

Please register with Marnie at marnieptipes@gmail.com or phone 613-224-0729 x228. Phone interviews will be conducted in late January and in-person group interviews will take place in late February.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
