age 15 to 19
Teen Connect & Communicate helps teens develop friendship skills such as chatting, showing interest in other people, staying in touch with friends and making plans together. Connect & Communicate also helps them learn skills for school and employment, such as knowing how and when to be polite and how and when to make small talk.
We provide direct instruction with lots of visual support to help teens learn what to do, and then provide opportunities for practice. We also discuss why these skills are important, to increase teens’ motivation to use their skills with family, friends and co-workers. The groups are limited to 6 participants, which allows for lots of practice and tons of fun!
Four sessions will be held at SpeechWorks Inc.. The final session will be an outing that we plan together.
Participants may have Autism Spectrum Disorder or Asperger Syndrome, but they do not need a diagnosis to participate.
