PEERS® or the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills, is a social skills training intervention for adolescents and young adults. This program, developed by Elizabeth Laugeson at UCLA, has a strong evidence base for use with teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorders, but it is also appropriate for teens and young adults with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other socioemotional problems. Recent research has demonstrated that gains made over the course of this program are maintained 3-5 years later (Laugeson et al., 2013).

PEERS® is unique and unlike other Social Skills Programs in that it:


  • Is evidence-based                                                

  • Includes parents                                                  

  • Teaches ecologically valid social skills                     

  • Tailors teaching methods to shared social skills 


Teens Will Learn How To:

  • Use appropriate conversational skills

  • Use humor appropriately

  • Use electronic communication

  • Enter and exit conversations

  • Be a good sport

  • Handle arguments and disagreements

  • Handle rejection, teasing and bullying
