‘What’s the Buzz?’ (for ages 12-15) is a 16-week social skills enrichment program for 12-15 year olds on the Autism Spectrum that encourages children to think about how to get along with others and explore the benefits of developing new social skills.

This highly structured, role-play and play-based program is designed to teach children how to think socially and make friendship work. It connects young people and offers them the skills to belong.
