As part of foundational family services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a family support coordinator after attending a workshop, to help you apply the workshop content to your specific family situation.
In this workshop participants will receive a presentation regarding challenges and strategies related to making friends when you have an autism diagnosis. This is a workshop designed for parents of teenagers, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions and participate in group discussions, if you desire.
As a result of participating in this workshop, you will better understand:
• Why socialization is challenging for teenagers with ASD
• How to increase social opportunities using natural methods
• How to increase social skills by accessing community programming
