Young Adult Social Communication Group
Individuals with social communication disorders secondary to high functioning autism often struggle with social communication issues. The social communication demands of college and work, especially for a young adult with social communication disorders, can be very challenging.
The Young Adult Social Communication Group supports young adults ages 18 to 30 in developing important skills necessary in the college and work settings.
The group meets weekly to discuss various social topics and to practice social and communication skills needed for social, academic, and work life in a support group setting. Some of the topics include:
- Conversation skills with peers
- Conversation skills with authority figures
- Time management
- Non-verbal communication skills
- Professional communication skills
- Job interviewing skills
- Communication during conflict
- Topic management
- Use of abstract language
- Social Thinking skills
