Fostering Positive Social Interactions
Social and play skills are some of the common challenges for learners and families living with autism. At Continuum, we understand the importance of forming meaningful relationships with parents, friends, and teachers. We offer a variety of group services, both in-person and through telehealth, to help our learners develop foundational skills for social interactions. Our groups provide an opportunity for learners to interact and practice skills with similar-aged peers. We teach foundational social skills through direct instruction using multiple teaching techniques including modeling, role-play activities, videos, and games. Each learner joins a small group (4-8 participants) according to their needs, age, caregiver priorities, topic interests, and activity level. Our groups are led by trained technicians and supervised by a Consultant.
Social Skills Groups
We offer multiple social skills groups for teens and pre-teens both in-person and via telehealth. These groups address many topics such as: developing and maintaining friendships, teamwork, communication with peers, strategies for handling complex emotions, and more! Group-based curriculum is scientifically-based for teaching skills needed for navigating the social world. From small group instruction to structured social outings, your learner will develop effective ways to build lasting relationships with their peers.
