Children's Friendship Training

Children's Friendship Training
February 2018
Children's Friendship Training is an evidence-based, group-format, parent-assisted social skills intervention for children ages 8 - 12.  It has been proven effective with verbal children who have high-functioning Autism, Asperger Syndrome, PDD NOS, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and prenatal alcohol exposure.  This program was developed at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where it has been used and studied for over 20 years with more than 1,000 families.
Children's Friendship Training is a 10-week, evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated children who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. During each group session teens are taught crucial social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session during role-play and play activities (e.g. sports, board games, etc.).
Parents are taught how to assist their children in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments designed to build on skills practiced in the sessions.
