Social Skills Groups

Maintaining social interaction and life skills is an ongoing journey for a child with autism. Social Skills Groups give children the additional mentorship needed to navigate the social world with skill and confidence.

At the Wisconsin Early Autism Project, we recognize that as children get older, the social world can become more complex. Children with autism often benefit from structured opportunities to develop and maintain friendships in a safe and supported environment.  Social Skills groups provide ongoing training in social interaction, social communication, and behavior regulation skills throughout childhood and adolescence.  The Wisconsin Early Autism Project offers a range of small groups and clubs for children of similar ages and skill-ranges to come together with the support of a trained clinician.  Group activities may occur in the clinic or community based settings, and include a blend of child-directed and adult-led interactions.  A strong ethos of coaching and mentorship across children and facilitators guides the sessions, as life-long relationships are developed.
