Your teenager is gifted in so many ways. They’re academically smart, but they may struggle to make friends and handle stress. As a caregiver, you worry. Your teenager has autistic traits or may even have a diagnosis of ASD. Because of this, your teen has difficulty in social situations. You find yourself intervening for them in school and other areas of their life. You want them to learn how to advocate for themselves, make friends, and navigate their world independently so they can be successful in college and adulthood.
Our groups at Open Doors Therapy support both you and your teen. The teen social skills group is for 16 to 19 year-olds who are either in Junior or Senior year of high school or the first two years of college. We support your teen in developing better social communication skills, self-awareness, and self-esteem, as well as greater self-advocacy and stress management skills. Our goal is to help your teen build important life skills to support their transition to college and adulthood. An added benefit of our groups is that your teen will be with supportive peers who are also neurodiverse and gifted. Being with peers your teen identifies with can help reduce your child’s loneliness, and give them a sense of acceptance and belonging.
Our caregiver support group offers parents a non-judgmental environment where you can gain support, and learn strategies to facilitate your son or daughter in applying the skills from group to real-life situations. Through attending this group, you’ll be able to better help your child improve the quality of their life and aid their transition to adulthood.
Group is held weekly on Wednesday from 5:00 PM-6:30 PM for 20 weeks.
Please reach out to do a free phone consultation to determine if this group is a good fit for your child. The group starts mid-January, so please contact us before it fills up.
