Event description

Description


We are thrilled to announce that the fees for this session of CFT have been partially covered through an Ottawa Community Foundation Grant.

This Eventbrite link is for registration for the Thursday Group starting September 19th, 2019.

CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIP TRAINING

Children’s Friendship Training is an evidence-based, group-format, parent-assisted social skills intervention program 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
The fee for this program is generally $200 per child but with the OCF grant, we are offering it for $75.
TIPES will conduct the pre-screening for children that register for this program to ensure suitability. You will not have to pay until you are officially registered. 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 families 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 years old

- Children diagnosed with high functioning ASD and are motivated to attend the group

Dates:

This is a 10-week program and will be held on Thursday evenings from September 19th to November 21st, 2019.

Please contact Marnie at marnie@tipes.ca or by phone: 613-224-0729 x 228 if you have questions.

Phone intakes will be conducted in mid-August. In-person, group interviews will take place in late August.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
