The Autistry Studios Sibling Support group provides a place for teens who have a sibling with ASD to experience understanding and peer support, learn coping skills, highlight positive interactions and have fun!
We will meet on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:00 beginning October 27th and concluding December 22nd with a break for the week of Thanksgiving.
We will also work together to plan at least 2 outing activities depending on the interests of the participants. These excursions may be on Saturdays.
Sara Gardner, an educator and MFT trainee will lead the group. She will use art materials, games, and mindfulness exercises, but primarily focus on giving these special teens time that is all their own. The group activities will develop to meet whatever needs the members present individually and as a group.
Group Fee: $50/session (1.5 hours). Meets weekly for 8 weeks.
Course Schedule: 6:30pm to 8pm on Thursdays beginning October 27th
Activity Fee: Additional fees may arise depending on cost of outing activities.
Ages: 13 and older
