Individuals ages 12-21 with Autism Spectrum Disorders are eligible for this group. The Start Center groups encourage the development of practical social skills. Our leaders use modeling and mentoring to encourage individuals to participate and practice interaction with peers.  This is an excellent complement to individual, home, and school supports.
