Is PEERS right for my teen?

Teens must be between 13-17 for the duration of the course.

SOCIAL CHALLENGES?

Does your teen struggle in social situations are they nervous or withdrawn or do they appear to be overcompensating in social situations?

DO YOU HAVE TIME?

To get the most out of Peers you and your teen have to have the time to commit to the programme ensuring that you attend every session in the course.

A VOLUNTARY PROGRAMME

Peers is a voluntary programme and we want everyone that participates to truly want to be there. The course's success is dependent on the amount of work your teen puts into it.

WILLING SUPPORT NETWORK

A parent or guardian must be willing to participate and support the course participation as their real-world social coach. We will provide you with the support to succeed in this role.
