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
In the true spirt of play and friendship 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. 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 (and related needs), 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.
