CONNECT is a monthly group for adults (18+) with high-functioning autism who are seeking a safe social outlet. Individuals with high-functioning autism frequently find themselves isolated despite wanting to make and keep friends. They often have fewer opportunities to interact with others and lack the self-confidence needed to initiate relationships in the opportunities they do have. Less developed social and executive functioning skills make it difficult to know how to find opportunities for developing relationships. This group will provide a safe environment for these individuals to connect and practice interacting with others under the supervision of a trained professional.
SOCIAL CLUB is club for adult with autism. This is an opportunity to practice social skills and make friends. All Social Club activities are facilitated by Dave Griffin.
