Social Skills Help for Autism

Using fun to build friendship and emotional regulation skills


After School Sessions

Don't miss out on school.

We've set things up so that your child doesn't have to miss out on school and you don't have to deal with midday appointments. Instead, all sessions are at after-school times in the afternoons or evenings because your child needs routine.

No Waiting Lists!

You hate waiting lists and so do we!

Your child needs to learn asap. We have many, many groups and we would rather add more groups than have a waiting list. Every week your child is not learning new skills is a wasted week. We'll do everything we can so your child can start in our next course.

Help for children, teens & adults with Autism in Australia

It can be tough to find help in Australia for your child, teen, young adult with Autism. The demand for support here is so much greater than what is available. ASD is something to get help for sooner than later. Long wait-times mean that your child’s peers move ahead socially, but your child can be left using the same skills that are not currently working for them. We do all we can to keep waiting times and waiting lists short for your child, because we know that the sooner your child starts learning new strategies, the sooner they can experience better social success.

Help your child make new friends

"Every child wants to have friends and have people who want to hang out with them. No child wants to be alone. What a great course."

- Wendy, Mum of a lovely teenage daughter.

Learn strategies to deal with frustrated or anxious feelings in social situations.

Strategies to help read social cues - things like eye contact, tone in others' voices and body language.

Improving self-talk strategies that enable your child to think realistically and optimistically.

Peace-Of-Mind Promise: What if my child needs to pull out?

Your child can:

  • Stop doing their course if they need to.
  • Switch to a different course if you need to.
  • Do ‘catch-up’ sessions for missed sessions.

You won't be billed for an entire course if your child needs to pull out.

Almost every time, our kids/teens find their groove and enjoy their sessions.

If your child needs tweaks, we can switch your child to a different mini-group, modify session times, or even pair them with a different leader.

We understand that sometimes life seriously happens… A death in the family, sudden health issues, parents going through a hard time etc etc. 

But rest assured, if it doesn't work out (and it will), you're only billed for the part of the course that your family participated in.

Strategies to help your child build friendships

When children don’t know how to maintain friendships or how to build relationships with their peers, it can really hurt their self-confidence and self-esteem. No parent wants to see their child lonely on the school playground. We teach skills and strategies that can help your child know how to interact well with their peers so that over time they can begin to build and maintain friendships.

ASD training

Your child can learn to make friends. Don’t give up!

Your child with Autism may have difficulty reading social cues and find it tricky to interact with others.

It’s also possible that other children feel slightly awkward when interacting with your child due to their unique ways of interacting with others.

That’s where deliberate, well-planned training of specific social skills can make a huge difference for your child with Autism. The great news is that these skills can be taught to children.


“I am so amazed at how wonderful you all [Leaders] are and how great you are at communication.

Everyone I talk to is so lovely and as parents we just can’t thank you all enough.”

Meg - Mum of an amazing son

“Can you believe it. This is so much fun. Mum enrolled me in this program without telling me and she pays me to come and now I’m having so much fun."

- One of our teens in PEERS Social Skills program
