Friendship Group & Playdate
Friendship Group & Playdate are peer groups designed to strengthen the social interaction and communication skills of children, teens, and young adults with autism spectrum disorders. Teaching social skills to individuals with autism is an area of treatment that is continuously evolving.
The vision of ISADD’s Friendship Group and Play dates is to equip the child with the necessary skills needed to engage and nurture meaningful relationships, to provide a platform where target skills from ISADD intervention programs can be generalize, to facilitate genuine friendship amongst the participants, hence creating a sense of acceptance and belonging to give their self image and confidence a huge boost in their natural environment.
That was a year ago, and what an amazing change we have seen since Isadd have been on board.
He is now attending a mainstream kindy, initiating play with all the kids, and is talking in sentences.
To all my angel Isadd therapists there are not enough words to thank you for all the hard work you do. You are all priceless.
