2020 GROUP PROGRAMME

We run a variety of different groups through the year. To keep in touch with which groups we are running we recommend that you subscribe to our Weekly Bulletin by emailing us at the clinic.


Being Me Group

For 13-17 year old females

The programme is designed for teenage girls with high functioning individuals with ASD (i.e. level 1 and 2).  The program explores self-identity and understanding of self as a young woman with a unique profile of abilities.  Women with ASD have often described that not knowing themselves has led to poor relationship and career choices, and ultimately, in some cases, depression. Understanding and celebrating self in terms of our strengths, difficulties and personality characteristics provides a strong foundation for success in adult life and a powerful antidote to depression and low self-esteem.  Girls will also learn about different types of friendships and relationships with boys. The group provides a structured, friendly and warm environment that celebrates and embraces differences.

Social Detectives

For 4-6 year olds

Social skill deficits are an enduring feature of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). During this group, children will join Evan, Molly, Jesse and Ellie on their adventures to familiar and far-off places (like outer space!) where they explore important social concepts through their thoughts and interactions. This group program aims to teach children social-emotional skills such as self-awareness, perspective taking, social problem solving (flexibly solving problems) and emotions. This group program is based on the We Thinkers! Social Explorers Curriculum, evidence-based materials to develop foundational social competencies.
