Increasing Autism acceptance and understanding is the goal of the Friendship Network’s Student-to-Student Autism Connection. This volunteer advocacy group was established in 2008 and has grown increasingly stronger. Students with and without Autism gather weekly to create on going presentations that they present at local schools, colleges, workshops and more! Click here to meet the members.
The Friendship Network’s Social Accessibility Therapy group sessions are offered four times a year for children, teens and young adults. Groups are geared towards increasing social independence and improving social skills while also encouraging a positive sense of self. What makes the Friendship Network so unique is the group leader’s training in the Connection Formula and ability to maintain a socially accessible environment. Group members are provided the rare opportunity to increase social confidence, experience genuine acceptance, develop true friendship and expand important relational skills.
