RETURN TO CIDD HOMEPAGE

 

The CIDD runs a number of social skills groups designed to help children, adolescents, and adults develop their social communicative skills.  The groups are open to those with a formal diagnosis that impacts their social communication abilities (such as autism spectrum disorder), as well as those simply wishing to improve their social skills.  The groups are designed for individuals with verbal skills that would allow them to benefit from the back-and-forth conversations that are part of a group setting.

To learn when the next group begins that may be suitable for you or your child, please contact Twyla Peoples at Twyla.Peoples@cidd.unc.edu or at 919-843-1529.
