Asperteens
Social Skills & Social Group for Teens with ASD/ADHD

Asperteens is a 14 week social skills intervention and social group for motivated teens in secondary school who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. During each group session teens are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during socialisation activities, immediately afterward during a social get-together and again after the group.

Parents attend separate sessions whilst the teens socialise and are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by helping to expand their teen’s social network and providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialisation home assignments.
