We offer priority registration to those already enrolled in our groups. For those enrolled in our Spring or Summer groups, we typically offer a period of priority registration and then open enrollment to those on our wait-list.

PLEASE NOTE: For those new to our groups, an intake is required prior to registration. See FAQ question #6.

The schedule below is for Fall 2022. The schedule is subject to change, as a minimum enrollment of three or four (3 or 4) registrants per group is required for all groups to begin.  Youth are grouped by age and gender.  We also offer groups for youth who are high functioning but have symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other social impairments.  These groups are co-ed and listed as ASD.
