Two of our speech pathologists Caroline Fewtrell and Amy Mulkearns attended the PEERS® for Young Adults Certified Training Seminar at the end of January 2019. This exciting new program has just recently been launched in Australia and is the first evidence-based group treatment program for teaching social skills to young adults and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as the neurodevelopment disorders and social challenges. The program involves teaching both students and their 'social coaches' (friend/parent/caregiver) by using engaging group sessions to teach appropriate social behaviours.
It is prerequisite for each student to be willing and motivated to participate in the program.
Each Group is a 14-week course and sessions will run for approximately an hour depending on the number of students.
NBSLR is planning to run groups for adolescents in 2019. Please register your interest by filling out the contact form below. We will contact you with details when we have enough interest for the group to run.
