ASD Group Programs

ASD Group Programs

These group programs are customized to fit the needs of neurodiverse gamers. It is typically for those on the autism spectrum, who might need more support than what our standard programs have the capacity for. This program has a modified format. Please get in touch to see if it’s a good fit for you. The program takes place over a weekend and has followup sessions to help keep the family on track. The weekend format covers all the essential content needed to foster positive change at home, with the support of an extra staff member to ensure a 1:4 or 1:5 ratio for participants. Family members join the fun in the afternoon to take part in the process. All families also receive permanent access to the online resource to help stay on track. Programs can be face to face or online.
