PEERS® for Young Adults

PEERS® for Young Adults was developed at UCLA and is an evidenced-based social skills intervention for motivated adults (ages 18-35) who are interested in making and keeping friends and/or developing romantic relationships. Participants often experience social difficulties as a result of autism, ADHD, or social anxiety.

Young adults and their social coach (usually a parent/caregiver) attend 14 weekly group sessions for 90 minutes per week.

Young adults will learn about:

  • developing and maintaining friendships
  • conversational skills
  • entering and exiting conversations
  • appropriate use of humor
  • electronic communication
  • dating skills
  • organizing get-togethers
  • handling direct and indirect bullying
  • handling disagreements

Participants learn social skills through straightforward, step-by-step instruction, demonstrations, and practice. Social coaches attend separate sessions simultaneously and are taught how to assist the young adults in making and keeping friends.
