Description

** PEERS for Preschoolers ** PEERS® for Preschoolers is a 16-week empirically-supported, parent-assisted social skills treatment program for young children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder who have difficulty in their peer interactions and friendships. During each group session, children are taught fundamental play and social skills through a live puppet show, followed by a range of games and activities designed to rehearse newly learned skills and reinforce skill development in a naturalistic setting. Parents simultaneously attend separate sessions and are taught how to help their children make and keep friends. To maximize parent training, each session includes parent-coached play, consisting of mock play dates between group members, during which parents receive performance feedback from the treatment team on their social coaching. Enrollment is limited. Classes are on Tuesdays from 3:30-5pm at UCLA. Group instruction is provided in English. Regular attendance is imperative. Parent participation is required.
