Let’s Socialize

Let’s Socialize is a social skills program to support youth from 12-16 years old who are diagnosed with Autism. Let’s Socialize consists of 2 six-week programs to support social skills development and the understanding of healthy sexuality. The group is designed to have both a parent and youth component whereby parents attend for the full 12 weeks and are provided parallel information to the youth room. This ensures that parents have the tools to support ongoing skills development with the youth. The curriculum is offered from Sep – Dec and Jan – Apr annually.
