Clinic provides social skills training for youth with social challenges

The Department of Communicative Sciences and Deaf Studies has launched a new clinic, Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS), which provides social skills training and intervention for youth with social challenges. The evidence-based clinic, which will meet from 4-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays throughout the 2017 fall semester at the Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic on campus, is available to youth, 14 to young adult, with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression or other socioemotional problems. Meeting in a group setting, the clinic helps teens and young adults who struggle to make and keep friends to maintain those relationships. The clinic is $35 per semester (12 weeks) and is facilitated by graduate clinicians at Fresno State as well as a licensed speech-language pathologist.
