AUTISM SUPPORT PROGRAMS
Striving To Provide The Latest In Support
At OUR VILLAGE, we are always looking for new ways to support children and teens on the autism spectrum through providing access to the latest evidence-based programs, providing social support and community awareness, and by respecting each individual's social motivation and unique ways of learning. We are privileged to provide our programs in various school and community settings.
Please check out our latest article from the BEACH REPORTER newspaper interviewing our very own founder, Monica Fyfe, and Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson, developer of UCLA PEERS.

PEERS® social skills intervention for adolescents & parents!
Teenagers 13-18 and their parents are invited to attend our certified PEERS® group which works on correcting common social errors through CBT, role-play, homework and social coaching, over 14 weeks time.
Sibshops: Sibling Support Groups
Siblings are often the "shadow warriors" that are a lifelong ally for their brother or sister with autism spectrum disorder. But they need support too! This group helps them feel they are not alone, gives them praise and attention for their own unique gifts, and helps them navigate their role and share what it's like to be a sibling in an accepting small group environment.
