TEEN SOCIAL CLUB
Kick Back with Friends!
2nd and 4th Tuesday Every Month
7:00-8:00 pm | Zoom Meeting
After a long day of school, relax and connect with friends in the Teen Social Club! The middle and high school years are a challenge for everyone, as relationships move from the playground to relationship-based friendships that depend on reading social cues, communication, and emotional reciprocity, all things that can be difficult for someone who lives with autism and other developmental disabilities. As a result, ASGA offers a Social Club for Teens age 13 to 17 who are looking to make friends and have fun!
WHAT TO EXPECT

The Club is not considered a therapy group and is not equipped for that purpose. It is only intended to provide an opportunity for connections and fun interactions among individuals of a similar age. The Teen Social Club is free and limited to 15 participants who have strong verbal abilities.
MEET THE LEADER
My name is Beth Hittie. I am an Intervention Specialist in Columbus, Ohio. You can find me outside most of the time; I enjoy hiking, biking, climbing and swimming. I love music and am always looking for song recommendations! My favorite artist is Bruno Mars. I'm looking forward to the Teen Social Club and getting to know all who attend. See you all soon :)!
