Social Skills Group Interest Survey - For Middle & High School Students with Autism


We are conducting an interest survey for our upcoming summer social skills groups at the Burkhart Center. Our staff wants to know the level of interest and preferred times and days of the week for participation.

The social skills groups aim to teach students valuable skills, such as accepting constructive criticism, giving and receiving compliments and apologies, building and maintaining friendships and relationships, setting short- and long-term goals, learning effective problem-solving and conflict-resolution skills, exhibiting appropriate behavior in different social settings, and being open to alternative opinions or points of view.

Usually, the Burkhart Center runs 45-minute in-person groups, once a week for six weeks.
