Many individuals on the autism spectrum need help in learning how to interact in different types of social situations. They often want to initiate socially interactions with others, but may not have the skills to engage in conversation with friends or be overwhelmed by the idea of new experiences.
Creating opportunities to build up social skills can help enhance participation in the community and support outcomes like friendships and happiness.
At Twinkle Autism Therapy, we create social skills groups with individuals who are around the same age in order to work together to achieve common goals. Our social skills groups are designed with structure and predictability to ease the uncertainty of new experiences. We breakdown abstract social concepts, reinforce socially appropriate behavior, and provide opportunities to practice skills that will transfer to real-life settings.
