Social Skills Training – Peer mediation is the most effective approach!
Does your child need help developing his/her social skills? Did you know that the best way to help a child with autism develop these skills is not by getting an adult to teach them (i.e., instructor lead approaches) but rather to get other typically developing peers to model and teach them social skills? Click here to learn more about the importance of integration and peer-mediated approaches from Dr. Phil Strain, a leading researcher in this area. Breakthrough Autism offer many programs that include peer-mediated approaches to social skills training such our Kids Helping Kids summer program and our specialized home-based and centre-based programs.
