The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Social Skills (PEERS®) will be offered again in the Springfield, IL area this spring. PEERS® is designed for young adults, ages 18 to 35, with autism spectrum disorders and other social challenges. It is a 16-week program that requires active participation of both the young adult and a designated social coach in their life.
PEERS® sessions will be held at Lincoln Land Community College on Tuesdays, from 6 pm – 8 pm. The first session is January 14 and they continue through May 12, except March 10 and March 24. There is a fee associated with the program.
Members of The Adult Autism Group have benefited greatly from this program in the past. While the information session has already happened, there is still time left to register for the program!
