Empower uses scientific methods of ABA Therapy to teach social skills within peer social groups.

The goal is to pair children on the spectrum with other children for fun and reinforcing activities. It makes social interaction more enjoyable and encourages friendships.

The children on the spectrum will be accompanied by a technician in charge of monitoring the individualized treatment plan's target goals. The therapist will help the children by prompting them to interact in appropriate situations. The social groups have a fun and upbeat environment to boost the results.

Our dedication to helping our clients  

Our dedication to helping our clients have meaningful social relationships drives our social group programs. The training program may have the following activities based on the requirement of the child,

Peer social groups are conducted in community settings to help them develop skills in a meaningful environment. These groups are formed based on the interests and abilities of the child on the spectrum.
