Sabra Evans has spent the past four years working with teens who have HFA both on an individual basis and running social skills classes/groups. The topics these teens most often bring up to her are: dating, sexuality, intimacy, friendships, homework/test/projects/group projects, organization, study habits or lack there of, college, family dynamics, seeking jobs, conflict resolution, teenage norms, general stress and anxiety etc.
This 1:1 social coaching is not to be in place of, but in addition to a social skills group with other teens with HFA and trained peers. These social skills groups are imperative for teens with HFA to actively learn specific social skills by role playing the skill, peer remediation, and other research based strategies determined by the social coach. Sabra Evans also offers teen social skills group through totallysocialasd.com.
