After months of research and preparation, Constellations is happy to announce the reappearance of our social skills group as an added component to our Home-based programming treatment package. Considering the variable evidence of the efficacy of social skill group interventions, Constellations sought to create an intervention that incorporated treatment components that are research-based and proven to increase skill acquisition in the most critical of skill deficits caused by autism (Bellini, Peters, Benner, & Hopf, 2007; Wang & Spillane, 2009; Reichow & Volkmar, 2010; Cappadocia & Weiss 2011; Reichow Steiner, & Volkmar, 2013). Our social skills instruction model utilizes the Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS) with the added support of a clinician in the community setting to support generalization of skills through parent instruction and supported get-togethers with peers (Laugeson, Frankel, Mogil, & Dillon, 2008).
Constellations Behavioral Services is excited to announce the expansion of our popular center-based ABA program into the home and community. This is a natural progression of services that will allow the skills mastered by our students at the Clinic for Autism to be generalized even more so into their home and community settings. This new branch will be lead by Danielle Tibert, MS Ed., BCBA who has experience in running social skills programs in MA and NH as well as has extensive experience in home based and school consult. She is also the only PEERS certified provider in NH! This program is open to students who are graduating out of the Clinic for Autism as well as those that may be on a waiting list or are just coming to us for the first time. Please call (800) 778-5560 to learn more and reserve your space.
