Social Groups and Autism

Social groups provide an opportunity for individuals on the autism spectrum to meet each other and to improve their social skills in a safe, supportive environment.

The groups are usually facilitated by professionals or volunteers but offer flexibility in the leisure activities they provide. For example,some may focus on one activity, such as drama, whilst others may offer a wider range of activities.

Social groups differ from social skills groups in that they are less focussed on the attainment of skills and more focussed on providing opportunities for people to participate in mainstream leisure.
