Autism Support for Teens, Young Adults, and Parents 

Social and emotional deficits are often a concern for teens and young adults with autism or a related diagnosis. At Plymouth Psych Group, we have developed several programs tailored to meet the specific needs of teens and young adults on the spectrum. We offer support in a variety of formats for clients ages 12-25 and their families to help provide the skills needed to help live a happy and fulfilled life.

All teen, young adult, and parent groups are facilitated by experienced and compassionate clinicians with years of experience working with autism spectrum disorder and related diagnoses.

To determine if the ASD programs and services at Plymouth Psych Group are a good fit for you and your family, please call us at 952-444-2099 or complete an online appointment request form to schedule an assessment.

Programs for Adolescents/Teens:

  • Chill Skills Social Coaching Group is an interactive activity group for teens that provides a platform to interact with like-minded individuals and encourages teens to break the comfort of routine by switching tasks and engaging with different group members. The lead therapist will serve as a social coach by helping the teens to develop confidence and use the skills that will help foster social interactions during the group.
