Thanks to the generosity of the United Way Lower Mainland, Friend 2 Friend Social Learning Society offers our United Way School’s Out Friend 2 Friend Society Program.
United Way School’s Out Friend 2 Friend Society Program
brings together children with autism (novice players) with their typically developing peers (expert players) ages 6 to 12 in the true spirit of play and friendships. The program focuses on enhancing the children’s, social, communication, emotional regulation, and peer play needs while fostering mutual friendships.
Under the guidance of highly trained professionals, children with autism, their peers, siblings, and their families receive the specialized supports needed to build self-confidence and social inclusion while at the same time reduce anxiety and bullying. Programs are offered once weekly during after school times for children ages 6 to 12.
Program Details Combining three evidence-based models: the award-winning Integrated Play Groups®, Friend 2 Friend Autism Demystification®, and SCERTS® models, United Way School’s Out Friend 2 Friend Society Program offers unique peer play intervention programs. The program provides detailed assessment reports including weekly session notes, an interim and final report, and free Autism Demystification® programs to the schools and other community settings. The program also offers free parenting training, program consultations, and program support.
