Friendships are key for a healthy development for children and youth. Maintaining and developing friendships can be especially tricky to navigate for children and youth with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This peer group is aimed at teaching and providing participants with opportunities to practice the skills necessary for developing friendships as well as how to maintain friendships. Participants will practice getting to know each other, how to initiate and end conversations, conversation do’s and don'ts and how to host and be a guest at a play date. Participants will have opportunities to learn these skills while interacting with each other and participating in group games.
