Our social skills curricula help to establish and develop participants’ skills in interacting and connecting with peers. Using evidence-based strategies, this group will focus on further developing social skills to be successful in group activities. Topics to be explored: expanding on visual schedules, further developing abilities to follow individual and group instruction, further developing the ability to transition between activities and spaces, expanding on co-operative play and activities.

Pre-Screen: Prior to registration for any group, the child or youth will participate in a group pre-screen. A group pre-screen is an opportunity for the child or youth to see what a group at Kerry’s Place Autism Services looks likes. Based on the staff members’ observations during the group pre-screen, and in consultation with the child or youth and their caregiver, our experienced staff will make recommendations for any service that might best meet the needs of the child or youth. Participating in a group pre-screen does not guarantee that the child/youth will be enrolled in a particular group or service. Pre-screening sessions are valid for 6 months. This group will require both a virtual and in person pre-screen session.
Last Available Pre-Screen – Wednesday, November 17, 2021 Registration opens: Wednesday, October 13, 2021 Registration closes: Tuesday, December 21, 2021
