We have put together this Social Integration Program to help our students develop interpersonal skills and the social knowledge needed to form relationships and interact with peers.
Those on the Autism spectrum often lack the ability to spontaneously learn reciprocal social interaction. Their limited ability to communicate, especially during play with peers, leads to a lack of developed peer relationships and can leave them vulnerable to exclusion and bullying.
Through our social groups and activities, your children get the opportunity to develop their reciprocal social skills in a safe and caring environment.
Our current Social Integration Programs:
Children’s Friendship Training and PEERS Training.
Children’s Freindship Training is a 10-week, evidence-based friendship learning course to teach children ages 9-12, the skills required to make and keep friends. The fall group is a partnership between Autism Ontario and Rideau Islands and Lakes Theatre School (RILTS) who will be facilitating an improve portion of the workshop.
Current training program started September 17 and runs until December 3rd.
We are now taking intakes for the Winter Programming. There is a cost to this program.
