We believe in an inclusive community where connections matter. We welcome learners from diverse backgrounds, locations and with various learning needs.
We appreciate feedback and will continually strive to update and improve our services based on your suggestions.
We ask that all participants assume good will even if things go wrong! Be patient, kind and helpful. We will respond as quickly as possible to issues that arise. We hope you are thrilled to finally find what you need to know!
We do not require a diagnosis, however, most of our students are considered on the autism spectrum, have ADD/ADHD, social anxiety, depression or other special needs. Our students have trouble making and keeping friends but are motivated to make friends. They need boundaries, filters and coping skills and are motivated to participate in online classroom discussions.
Each participant in our program will have varying results, in part due to individual motivation and focus on the lesson topics presented. We highly encourage parents (caregivers or staff) to further assist with generalizing skills through active practice in daily life. Social skills training is an all-day, every day adventure! Check out our coaching videos that complement the live lessons.
While we cannot guarantee an outcome, we guarantee your satisfaction with our courses!
