Adolescent Social Skills Group (PEERS)

PEERS (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills) is a 14-week evidence-based social skills intervention. It is a free program which runs once a week for 90 minutes. Groups will be offered in two lcoations across Toronto; one in the central/west end and one in the north/east end. Teens meet together to learn and practice key social skills, while parents meet in another room to learn how to coach and support these skills.

This group-based service is for adolescents 11-18 years old who are motivated to learn ways to make and keep friends. It is geared to those formally diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder who are considered to have High Functioning Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.

  • Middle school aged adolescents and their parents meet from 5:00-6:30 p.m
  • Secondary school aged adolescents and their parents meet from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Parents and teens must be able to commit to regular attendance and to participate in weekly homework assignments.
