Family Service League is pleased to announce that a Social Skills program for children on the autism spectrum will begin on Monday, October 30, 2017 (6pm – 7pm) in the FSL Westhampton Beach office at 40 Main Street.  This eight week, one hour program is designed to help children (ages 6-14) develop the skills needed to build friendships, interact with fellow students and other community members in fun-filled, educational sessions facilitated by professional staff.  This program is offered concurrently with a parent support group which allows parents to discuss the various autism spectrum issues and challenges with their peers.

Pre-registration and intake interview required.

$25 per session, fee includes both groups. Sliding-scale available.
