Social skills groups
Social Skills is an adult therapeutic group intervention which is focused on relationships and socialization skills for those who are on the Autism Spectrum. Although the schedule varies, the group meets regularly and discusses a variety of topics. Those in the group have the chance to meet with others who have similar interests and mindsets. Social Skills typically meets for dinner, although there have been other activities, such as trips to the fair and holiday parties. All adults on the spectrum are welcome to join the group.
