Home > Groups > The Time is Now: Register for 2017 Social Skills Groups!

Families, take note – December is upon us! While it may seem as though the new year is a long way off, we have only a few weeks left in 2016.

As such, now is the time to register for 2017 Rex Groups! They begin meeting in January, so it’s imperative to complete intakes in December. 

We’re offering Groups to support the entire family: children, teens, and young adults with autism and ADHD, siblings, and parents too.

Don’t put off registration; call (843) 792-9162 to sign up for a Group today.

We’re offering four social skills Groups with start dates in January (flyers included below):

*Note that the Sibling Support Group and Yoga Group are held at the same time so that all members of the family can participate! The child with special needs can be in yoga while the neurotypical sibling is in Sibling Group and the parent is in the Parent Group.

Also know that this is an especially important time to sign up for Sibling Support, as the level of enrollment will determine whether or not we can offer this Group going forward.

Finally, instead of a PEERS Group, we will be leading a research study based around the PEERS protocol.

The LENS “Learning Enhancement through Neurostimulation” study will examine whether brain stimulation paired with social skills learning can help teenage boys with autism learn how to make and keep friends.

Compensation is available for participants, and we’re recruiting males with autism ages 14-17. For more, visit the Learning Enhancement Through Neurostimulation page, and contact Laura Lohnes at lohnes@musc.edu or 843-792-7709.

    Are there ever any groups for 14 year old boys that were only diagnosed at age 13?

      Hello Jennifer! Yes, we offer two Groups that might be good options for your 14 year old: Pre-Teen/Teen Group (for ages 11-15) and Project PEERS Group (for ages 11-18).

      While we’re not offering those Groups now, we are recruiting participants for the LENS “Learning Enhancement through Neurostimulation” research study for males ages 14-17, which is based around the PEERS protocol. Compensation is available and details are listed above in this post.

      You can also visit the Groups page for descriptions and listings of the Groups mentioned above. Hope that helps!
