The Young Adult Social Skills Group (“A Beautiful Arrangement”) will be held at ATLAS Autism Center (1000 Behrman Highway in Terrytown) every Wednesday in August and September. Group begins at 6:00 PM and will last about an hour and a half to two hours each week. Dinner will be provided.
This group is being funded by a grant from the Hussman Foundation and the Autism Society of Greater New Orleans. Group will be guided by professionals from the Tulane Center for Autism and Related Disorders.
Upon completion of this interest form, you may be contacted for further details. We would love to include everyone in the group, however space is extremely limited for this project. Please understand that as much as we wish we could offer this to everyone in the community, we can only accept 5 participants.
Participants must be between 18 and 25 years old with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder to qualify for this group. Participants in this group must be willing to attend on their own accord, have the verbal abilities to participate in group activities independently, and not require help or supervision from a caregiver in public. Some of the sessions will take place in the community and we ask that participants are able to be dropped off and participate independently.
Thank you so much for your interest, the social group is now full.
