Chill at Home

Chill at Home is an online home-based interactive social skills coaching program for young adults 18 plus on the autism spectrum.

Chill at Home is a ten-week program (two 1.5 hour online sessions per week for ten weeks).

Supported by peer mentors, our interactive workshops use video illustration, peer demonstrations, role-play and social situation rehearsals. The program uses popular mediums of drama, music, film and social media to engage participants in a fun and creative experience.

Participants are streamed into peer mentor groups according to their current skills and capacity. Participant streaming maximizes the opportunity for our young adults to make connections with their peers during the program and establish new friendships.
