The FRIEND Program


This training offers an overview of the FRIEND Program, an inclusive social skills program for preschool-12th grade students which provides increased awareness of autism spectrum disorders, and how to create learning opportunities for individuals with ASDs to engage appropriately with typical peers in the natural setting at school during lunch and recess. Participants will develop an understanding of ASD learning challenges that may impact social interactions with peers. A discussion of how to implement the lunch and playground program will be reviewed. Innovative materials will be shared to include the FRIEND Program manual, children’s book Wings of Epoh, DVDs, an educator activity guide, informational tips useful for peer sensitivity training to promote awareness of ASD and social differences, and appropriate strategies for facilitating social interactions for school age students.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to discuss the justification of a social skills program for students with ASD during lunch and recess.
  • Participants will learn the step-by-step process to implement the FRIEND Program.
