Summer Autism Play Groups programs combine the award-winning Integrated Play Groups®, Friend 2 Friend Autism Demystification®, and SCERTS® models. These comprehensive summer programs are inclusive peer play, educational programs that focus on developing the social, communication and peer play competencies of all the children participating.
Summer programs are offered during July and August yearly. Play Group programs are offered online during the summer of 2020. The programs are designed to meet the social, communication and peer play needs of school-aged children.
