This internationally acclaimed program was originally developed at UCLA by PEERS® Clinic Founding Director, Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson. During each group session, young adults are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills. PEERS® may be appropriate for neurodevelopmental disorders and social challenges. Young adults must be socially motivated and attend each session with a social coach.
