Making Conversation and Making Friends

Teens with Autism or ADHD can have a hard time picking up on social cues and understanding the perspectives of others. Knowing how someone might react to something that we say or do makes it a struggle to start or engage in a conversation!

Do you have a teen son that has a hard time making friends and engaging in meaningful conversation with others, especially their own age? Is keeping friends a challenge? Then this group is for them! Join us at Integrative Psyche.

Identify strengths, self-compassion, and supportive relationships for healthier living.
