What we do

How it works

     making friends?  

     initiating or maintaining social interactions?

     taking others' perspectives?

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes", you've come to the right place!

Does your child or teen have difficulty...

PeerBuddies® provides ABA-based social skills training for children and teens with social difficulties through peer mentoring in the community.  Your child or teen will be paired up with a typically developing, same-aged or slightly older Peer Buddy who will teach your child these essential life skills!

Without your time and dedication, we simply couldn’t do this without you!
