Improving education for autistic students in Montgomery County, MD
PEERS® is an evidenced-based, parent-assisted social skills group model, and it is proven to be highly effective for teens, and young adults on the autism spectrum and with social communication challenges. MoCo PEERS® is offered by certified PEERS® instructors trained by Elizabeth Laugeson, Psy.D., Founder and Director of the UCLA PEERS® Clinic. The groups emphasize learning, rehearsing, and practicing social skills in a warm, supportive, enjoyable, and focused group setting. Group members support each other to actively practice with their peers as they learn and develop tools to improve their relationship skills. The groups also include social coaching sessions for parents or family members. These sessions support parents and family members by teaching them how to be effective social coaches with teens and young adults whom require a greater sense of independence during this time in their lives.
