Autism Hangout

Author John Merges has a meaningful, deliberate approach to teaching our special kids how best to respond in social situations. His book - "Social Enjoyment Groups for Children, Teens and Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders" starts with a candid discussion of 10 "hurdles" commonly faced by people on the spectrum and then lays out a fun, enjoyable way to channel these challenges into assets.

A private practitioner, John's "FunJoyment" groups are packed and growing... more than enough proof that his approach works, and it's fun!
