Young Adult Social Group (Virtual)
This ongoing weekly group aims to help young adults develop social skills needed to be successful within academic, social, work and family settings. Groups are psycho-educational by teaching social skills and coping techniques for young adults with ASD, ADHD, social difficulties, Asperger's, anxiety, LD's, and behavioral challenges. Participants learn skills and practice them in this safe, nonjudgmental virtual therapy environment. The group is open enrollment, as the group is ongoing. **The group also plans FUN SOCIAL OUTINGS to movies, amusement parks and gaming venues to encourage socialization outside of group!**

My Other Groups
Adjusting to college life can be one of the biggest life transitions for a young adult. It helps to verbally process the change with others going through the same transition. This group provides a safe space to discuss how to balance academic demands with a newfound freedom and social life. Skills are woven into group sessions such as: communication/assertiveness skills (eg for roommate issues, dating life, and communicating needs with professors); establishing healthy routines and self-care; managing homesickness; and maintaining good sleep hygiene. Group can be weekly or bi-monthly based on needs.
