Award Winning Organization!
The Friendship Network for Children is an award winning mental health organization helping children/teens on the autism spectrum or with social learning concerns. Your child is, of course, an individual and not a diagnostic label.
These are some of the challenges that the Friendship Network for Children can help with:
Anxiety and confusion
Problems with communication
Difficulty making friends
Behaviors that are not easily understood
Strong emotions that are difficult for the child - and others - to identify
Individual counseling and social coaching
In order to get a child ready for a socialization group or address a specific social-emotional need such as bullying, school-related anxiety, problem solving, coping strategies, and depression.
Workshops for children/teens with autism
Workshops include: Dating Dos and Don'ts, How to Handle Bullies, Changing Bodies, and more.
Student-to-Student Autism Connection Program High school and college students with and without autism come together to increase autism awareness and decrease bullying. The group presents dynamic workshops to students, teachers, parents, and civic organizations.
Consultations for parents and families Clinicians help parents and families understand the Friendship Formula™ and help them apply it so their children feel safe and understood.
