Social Skills Group
In the summer of 2013, a six week Social Skills Group for youth with a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome or another Autism Spectrum disorder was offered at the PWC. The group focused on building conversation skills such as initiating, maintaining and terminating a conversation, having a conversation with multiple people, discussing a range of topics of interest to oneself and a conversational partner, shifting topics in a conversation, and asking and responding to a variety of questions.
Autism Spectrum Disorder Cool Kids Program: Child Anxiety Treatment Program
In fall and winter of 2015, the Cool Kids ASD program was offered at the PWC. This program was focused on teaching children with ASD and their parents skills they could use to manage anxiety in everyday situations. For the children these skills included understanding anxiety, relaxation, identifying and using helpful thoughts and facing fears, building independence and increasing confidence through stepladders. The parents were shown strategies that could be used to encourage the child's brave behavior.
