PEERS

The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) was originally developed at UCLA by Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson and Dr. Fred Frankel in 2005. PEERS is a highly structured program designed to teach social skills to adolescents and young adults. PEERS® is one of the few research based social intervention programs that has strong evidence for its use with individuals who have autism, but also for teens and young adults with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other socioemotional problems. This program is run over the course of 14 weeks with participants taking part in a weekly 90 minute learning session, while parents simultaneously participate in their own 90 minute parent session. The joint sessions allow for parents to become coaches outside of PEERS® sessions, an important piece of the social skills development puzzle.
