TEEN SOCIAL CLUB
2nd and 4th Tuesday each month starting February 23, 2021
7:00-8:00 pm | Zoom Meeting
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 is launching 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 from Columbus, Ohio and I am in my final semester at Kent State University. I am studying Moderate/Intensive Special Education with a minor in Autism Spectrum Disorders. I like to go for walks and hang out with my friends. My favorite foods are pizza and popcorn. Can't wait to meet everyone this year!
GUIDELINES TO PARTICIPATE
NOTE: Participants must live in one of the five counties in ASGA's service territory: Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, or Wayne.
