The Role of the Social Coach:

A ‘social coach’ can be a parent, support worker or adult sibling of the participant. The social coach attends the group each week to learn strategies to support the teen or young adult in effectively implementing these skills. 

PEERS® program cost:

The cost of our 16-week PEERS® Program is $270 per week ($90 per hour), per group. The participant and social coaching group will be run at the same time with separate clinicians in individual breakout rooms.

This Program is inclusive of:

  • 90-minute social skills group
  • 90-minute training for the allocated social coach
  • Resources provided to support participant and social coach
  • Weekly homework tasks to build and develop skills between sessions

PEERS® is NDIS Supported

The NDIS supports individuals with social and emotional difficulties, decision making powers over the support services they receive. PEERS® can help participants meet their social, emotional and behavioural goals. These goals often will align with the NDIS plan goals. The PEERS® program can enable participants and their family’s capacity building in the following areas:

  • Improved Relationships
  • Improved Daily Living Skills​
