PEERS® Curriculum

The Choice Group is proud to offer PEERS® Curriculum training for young adults. Developed by UCLA, this evidence-based approach offers young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who are motivated to make friends but who have difficulty with social skills, an opportunity to participate in a 16-week skills training intervention. Classes center around instruction and supports which teach social skills. Didactic instruction, role-play demonstrations, behavioral rehearsal activities, and homework all help promote generalization of the skills learned in the young adult’s home, community, and workplace environments. Classes typically meet during a weekday evening, and last for 90 minutes.

Group sessions also require the participation of a Social Coach (typically a parent/caregiver) who meet together at the same time as the young adults. Social Coaches learn how to support young adults with practicing the skills being learned and coaching them through homework exercises. Groups do not exceed 8 participants. The young adult group is for individuals aged 18-29 who are motivated to make friends and can commit to attending all sessions with their Social Coach.
