Let’s get together on Zoom and learn about PEERS! Typically taught in person, however due to the pandemic, Zoom allows us to see and converse with each other in a typical lesson format. Interaction and participation is strongly encouraged between participants. Homework practice and parental involvement required.
PEERS stands for the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills and is world renowned for providing evidenced-based social skills treatment for adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, depression and other socio-emotional problems.
