Ashburn Psychological and Psychiatric Services is pleased to announce that we are running several social skills groups for children and teens on the autistic spectrum. Currently, we are running a group for pre-teen’s diagnosed with Asperger’s Disorder and a group for teens diagnosed with Asperger’s Disorder. We will be starting a third group for younger children with high functioning autism in the coming weeks.

Our groups are 60 minutes long and are run by 2 doctoral level psychologists with specialty training in autism. One psychologist facilitates the child or teen group and the other psychologist facilitates a parent meeting simultaneously. We feel that this is the best approach since both the children and parents get something out of each group experience. The groups have individualized goals, but the focus of the group is not overly scripted or structured; rather each group’s work varies and is based on what the needs of the group members are at the time.

To learn more about our social skills groups, we invite you to call our office manager, Christine Kutt, at (703) 723-2999.

We looking forward to hearing from you and supporting your child or teen’s needs to greater success!!!
