This group is designed for pre-teen and teen siblings and friends of a person with autism spectrum disorder. Participants will develop an understanding of autism spectrum disorder and the unique challenges people with ASD face on a daily basis.
Participants will develop communication and behavior strategies to improve interactions with people with ASD and, ultimately, develop a deeper empathy for all people with differences.
Groups will be capped at 6 students to maximize small group learning.
Session I is currently in progress and will end February 20th.
Session II will begin Thursday, February 27th and will meet weekly from 5-6pm. A second group may be established depending on registrations received.
