THRIVE (TEEN TRANSITIONS) is a monthly group for teens and young adults (14-22) with autism. The goal is to participate in discussions and expand our understanding of societies unwritten rules. We use Conover Soft Skills video & discussion format as curriculum. This group will provide a safe environment for individuals to discuss experiences with like-minded peers. The group facilitator is an adult on the autism spectrum who shares his story and experiences with participants.
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.
