Nexus: A Social Competence Program for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
The Nexus Program is a social skills training program that teaches and reinforces social skills in children. Our program is designed for children with significant social needs characteristic of those diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. The specific goals of the Nexus program are to provide an environment for children to socialize, to foster participant’s relationships with other children in the program, and to develop social skills that will allow participants to more fully participate in home, school, and community settings.
