This 8-week group is designed to enhance social skills of children with high-functioning ASD and ADHD. Diagnosis is not required for participation.
Social skills are introduced through social stories and include greetings, conversation skills, types of social relationships, boundaries, managing frustration and anger, and more. Groups include sensory and gross motor activities to enhance play skills.
Note that a mandatory parent group meets at the same time as this group.
To schedule an intake, call (843) 792-0037 and request a Project Rex Assessment.
Once the intake is complete, contact administrative assistant Lavinia Bowens at (843) 792-0037 to confirm attendance in the group series.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to each group meeting for sign in and registration.
Medicaid covers the program 100% and most private insurance is accepted. There is a discount for self-pay.

I have 15 year old son with a diagnosis of high functioning ASD/ADHD in Pawleys Island. Any chance doing something in Georgetown County? I did teach a PEERS class for a private school in California. I would be glad to help to get something started here.
Kristie, thank you so much for writing! I’ve forwarded your comment along to our clinical team to get their input on this. We don’t currently have a Georgetown County offering, but we’re definitely looking into multiple locations for future Groups. Definitely feel free to give us a call at (843) 792-9162 during business hours as well.
