PEERS®

PEERS (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills) is a social skills program for motivated teenagers and young adults who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends, and develop positive relationships.

This internationally recognised program was developed at University of California (UCLA) by Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson, PEERS Clinic Founding Director. CPA youth coaches have been trained and accredited to deliver this program.

During each weekly group session, individuals are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practise these skills during socialisation activities. Additionally, a chosen caregiver is trained as their social coach to support continued practice of their new skills at home.

Camps and Getaways

Youth camps and getaways are a great way for individuals to supercharge their journey to independence.

Our camps and getaways aim to provide young people with a disability the opportunity to experience the reality of living independently from their families.

Teens and young adults who attend these programs come away with new skills, new friends, a great mindset and a lifetime of memories.
