We are going to offer life skills training groups to preteens and teens on the spectrum. Autism at it's core is a disconnect in socialization, therefore social skills training is vital to maturation of the developmental progress of these children. The process of teaching social skills to children on the spectrum is as foreign and important as teaching children math. Social skills groups allow autistic children to interact with similar peers, learn important social skills and we will also incorporate basic life skill training.
We are going to provide support groups for parents to help them access resources for their children. Raising a child that is on the spectrum offers many different challenges than raising a child that is not on the spectrum. Learning how to advocate for your child can be one of the most difficult challenges.
