The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) is world-renowned for providing evidence-based social skills treatment to preschoolers, adolescents, and young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, and other socio-emotional problems.
Please see our PEERS Program page for more details: https://ldsociety.ca/peers/
This program is suitable for teens between the ages of 13 – 15 who are motivated to improve their social skills and learn how to make and keep friends. Please note that we may expand the age group for this PEERS session based on interest, so if your child falls slightly outside of the age requirements but may still benefit from PEERS, we encourage you to apply!
Parent and Teen sessions will run simultaneously on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. The program is 16 weeks long and will be held from January – April 2021.
Our Learning Centre in East Vancouver (3292 East Broadway). If required for public health and safety reasons, we may offer PEERS online.
