We are excited to announce the commencement of our first ever Ark Social Skills Training programs, commencing in April 2020.
Two of our experienced staff are being trained by PEERS Australia founder Dr Elizabeth Laugeson to deliver the PEERS program in Perth. PEERS stands for the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills. Developed at UCLA by Dr Laugeson, PEERS is a world leading, evidence based manualized social skills training program which focuses on enhancing real world skills for adolescents and young adults who experience social challenges. The program is suitable for adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum, ADHD, anxiety, depression and other socio-emotional challenges.
We were inspired to provide our staff with the skills to deliver this program after watching Dr Laugeson’s program on the hit ABC show Love on the Spectrum. Many of our clients who also watched this show identified this type of program as something they would love the opportunity for their loved ones to participate in. We have included the link to a snippet of Love on the Spectrum here:
