PEERS is different

Is the potential participant currently self-motivated to learn about how to make and keep friends?
This program is not appropriate for anyone whose parents or caregiver are requiring participation.

Is the participanat's receptive language and cognitive ability in the average range.
If not, research shows the intervention will take longer than 14 weeks. We hope to begin a 28 week program in the near future.


The participant must be able to talk in sentences to participate.

Can an adult commit to being a Coach?
1 adult will need to participate in all sessions. The adult will need to learn the skills and coach the teen/young adult participant 

outside of therapy sessions.

Many teens have found past program experiences disappointing. The PEERS  program is a unique and exciting opportunity for those ready and able to commit to the program.
