TEEN SOCIAL CLUB
Kick Back with Friends!
2nd and 4th Tuesday Every Month
7:00-8:00 pm | Mix of Virtual & In-Person Meetups
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!
