Social Connections

These groups are facilitated by two neurodiversity-affirming and strengths-based therapists and usually includes between 4-6 peers. These groups allow for a safe space for children to connect with peers, share interests, learn about themselves, and develop relationships.

Groups focus on developing:

  • How to speak up for themselves and ask for what they need (self-advocacy)
  • Understanding that peers may have different ideas or thoughts about a certain topic (perspective)
  • Learning how sounds, smells, movement and other sensory experiences affect the way they respond to the world (sensory preferences)
  • Learning skills for managing big emotions (self-regulation)
  • Supporting interactions between peers (facilitating social relationships)
  • Safety
  • Understanding boundaries and consent
  • Understanding what is happening in their own body (interoception)
  • Understanding how their own brain works (neurodiversity)


each year we help over 3,000 kids

In partnership with parents and caregivers, we celebrate where each child is today and work toward who they can become.
