What are PEERS Social Skills Groups?
PEERS is a social skills group that was developed for teens with Autism, ADHD, social behavioral challenges, and social pragmatic communication disorders. During each session, teens are taught important social skills and practice these skills with peers in the group. Caregivers also participate in separate groups to learn how to support their teens in using and expanding their social skills and networks. It’s important that both teens and caregivers are motivated to learn social skills and engage with the practice in sessions.
