Social Group

The Adult Social Group for individual’s in TEACCH® Supported Employment Program focuses on developing friendships, participating in community based activities and having fun. The individuals with ASD help to determine the various activities that are scheduled for the Social Group. These activities include holiday parties, bowling, miniature golf, dinner, movies, art night, BINGO, and local University sporting events. Engaging with the individuals with ASD away from the site of employment provides the job coaches with an opportunity to reinforce social skills that will also benefit the individual at the work place. The Social Group currently meets twice a year for large parties with a plan to expand this service in the future.
