The PEERS Program
Here is an example of what PEERS is like from disabilityscoop.com:

"...(T)he nine students around the table have a variety of developmental or mental disorders; the majority of them have autism. They've enrolled in a 16-week program to help them navigate the treacherous waters of social interaction, and on this Monday night, week 11 of the session, they're diving into the perils of dating.

There is a PEERS program offered locally for teens and young adults.  For more information, click HERE
