New Social Skills Classes

The new Social Skills Training program at the Family Center for Autism provides a safe environment where children and adolescents with autism can learn how to socialize with their peers and enhance their social competency.

Group classes will focus on conversational skills, understanding the use of humor, electronic/social media safety, identifying and
sustaining friendships, problem solving, developing coping mechanisms and fostering teamwork and cooperation.

Classes for younger participants will also include play skills, such as sharing, taking turns and game-playing etiquette.

Group classes are held on Saturday mornings, facilitated by a NYS Licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
