  • How to change a bad reputation

The online PEERS classes are broken into 14 x 90 minute weekly sessions which includes a parent debrief. During each session, teens are taught an important social skill and given an opportunity to practice that skill. Homework is then given for the week to give additional practice. Cost is $1260 and can be covered by AFU or DLs.
