TIPES offers Social Integration Programs for Junior and Senior Kindergarten aged children, teenagers and young adults. Group social programs are delivered using the principles of ABA. Therapists help youth develop functional communication skills (both verbal and non-verbal) and appropriate emotional responses. They also help youth in building friendships and trusting relationships with peers and adults. The focus of the program is to help youth with Autism and other exceptionalities feel comfortable in social situations.  Please be advised that some social programs will meet at different locations in order to maximize the use of taught skills within the natural setting.

Due to the positive gains and success of previous social integration programs, as well as high demand, TIPES has taken its Social Integration Programs and divided them into more defined groups.  These groups range from Saturday morning groups for kindergarten aged children to special one-off, evening events for teens and young adults.
