First Friends! – in Markham

October 21, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am


This interactive 6-week program for young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) aged 2 to 4 will help your child develop their social skills so they can play with other children, make new friends, and gain self-confidence.  Playtime has never been more fun! First Friends! is offered in two locations and on different days. Please see the chart below for available spaces.

Each session encourages active adult/child interaction from a parent, grandparent or caregiver.

This program offers:

  • Interactive, play-based learning with caregiver and child in a small group format
  • Opportunity to practice play and social skills with other children
  • Exposure to new toys and ways to play
  • Opportunities to build your child’s motivation to interact with others
  • A focus on building your child’s communication skills
  • Fun, interactive circle and story times
  • Weekly brief parent training included in every session

Supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), First Friends combines fun activities with evidence-based Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) strategies to meet your child’s individual needs.
