Saturday Autism Play Groups programs combine the award-winning Integrated Play Groups®, Friend 2 Friend Autism Demystification®, and SCERTS® models. These comprehensive programs are inclusive peer play, educational programs that focus on developing the social, communication, and peer play competencies of all the children participating.
Saturday Autism Play Groups programs are small, stable groups of children and youths ages 5 to 13 that meet regularly under the guidance of highly trained professionals to play. Each group consists of a single-family group (one child with autism and one or two siblings).
Like all Friend 2 Friend Programs, our Saturday Play Groups are comprehensive programs that focus on the development of the social, communication, and peer play competencies of all the children participating. The Society provides the following services (all included in the fee):
