Teen Programs

Being a teenager can be tough. We are here to offer programs to help make the most of their formidable years.

The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin strives to help teens learn about the many changes that they have going on, how to meet their ever-changing needs and become more socially aware of others.

By providing a forum to help make friends and form long-term relationships, we help take some of the tough out of being a teen in these transition years.

Middle School Group to Increase Social Understanding with Wade Koski, LCSW

July 10 – August 14 
Middle school aged children are faced with several changing events around them as well as changes in their appearance, behavior, and thought process. For a child on the spectrum these changes often create higher levels of stress, confusion, and withdrawn behavior.

In this six-week class, the members will learn about a variety of topics that are relevant to their age. The members will learn more about themselves as well as how to get their needs met while also being more aware of the needs of others.
