Supporting Neurodiverse Teens and Young Adults

This presentation will explore social skills challenges faced by neurodiverse teens and young adults, examining their potential impact on personal, educational, and professional aspects of their lives. Through a comprehensive overview, including insights into the Boston PEERS® curriculum, this presentation will provide valuable strategies to address these challenges, offering practical solutions for supporting neurodiverse individuals in navigating social interactions.

This presentation is tailored to benefit not only parents of neurodiverse children, teens, and young adults, but also anyone closely involved in their lives, including school providers, mental health therapists, and other relevant professionals.
