Group Intervention Services

The Charlotte TEACCH Center offers the opportunity for eligible TEACCH clients to participate in a variety of groups. Groups are generally formed to meet a specific need (i.e., social skills training, peer support, recreation, etc.). Additionally, groups are sometimes divided by age-range, gender, and skills needed to participate. We offer groups when we have a number of clients asking for a specific service or when we identify that many clients waiting for services have common interests, strengths, and needs.
