PEERS® is a 14-week evidence-based social skills training program for ASD adults who are interested in learning skills to make and keep friends and develop romantic relationships.

• Use appropriate conversational skills

• Find common interests by trading information
• Make phone calls and texts to friends
• Let someone know you are interested in dating
