The Mission of The Social Cog
The Social Cog provides an accepting peer group, social coaching, and shared social and emotional experiences to independently functioning adults with autism and other developmental challenges in order to help its Members make and maintain friendships and develop satisfying social and emotional lives.
THE SOCIAL COG IN ACTIONFor independently functioning adults with autism and other developmental challenges, making and maintaining friendships can be a very frustrating experience that is frequently fraught with failure and rejection. They often possess some of the elements that are needed to make friends and can get “so close,” but are missing key social competencies and opportunities necessary to achieve social success.
The Social Cog's Unique "Three Cog" Method
ACCEPTING PEER GROUP Our group is comprised of welcoming and accepting Members who are always excited to meet new people that share their desire to develop new friendships and enjoy a satisfying social life.
INDIVIDUALIZED SOCIAL COACHING Our Coaches are trained clinicians who work closely with each Member to set social goals.
SHARED SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCES Sharing social and emotional experiences with others helps us develop meaningful connections that help build satisfying relationships.
