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, emotional regulation, and peer play competencies of all the children participating.
Saturday Autism Play Groups programs are small, stable groups of children and youth ages 5 to 15 that meet regularly under the guidance of highly trained professionals to play and make friends. Each group consists of no more than five children (2 children with autism and 2 to 3 of their peers).
Like all Friend 2 Friend Programs, Saturday Autism Play Groups are comprehensive programs that focus on the development of the social, communication, emotional regulation, and peer play competencies of all the children participating.
