We believe strongly that for a dyad or group to be successful, participants in the group need to be well matched both in age and in ability.  When groups are available, they are usually run in 8-10 week segments, meeting weekly for 60-90 minutes, with an alternation of clinic work to teach targeted social skills and then community work to practice direct application of these skills.  Goals/Lessons are individualized for each specific dyad/group based on the social engagement and/or social cognitive needs of its members.
