Our Programs


PEERS® is a manualized social skills training program for youth with social challenges. It has a strong evidence-base for use with adolescents (Grades 8-12) with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), but is also appropriate for adolescents with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other socio-emotional challenges. This 12-week evidence-based program is for motivated adolescents who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. During each group session participants are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills during socialization activities (e.g., playing sports, board games, etc.). Parent participation is required and parents are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments.


Skills for Life Day Program

This small-group day treatment program is aimed at individuals with developmental disabilities (e.g., autism spectrum disorder, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, etc.), and acquired and traumatic brain injury. The program will be comprised of two streams: A Daily Living/Pre-Employment (DLP) Skills Supports stream and a Recreational stream. Within the DLP stream, the focus will be on practicing specific goals in the areas of adaptive and social skills. Within the Recreational Program, the focus will center on community participation and engagement. Programming will run in 12-week blocks throughout the year and classes will be supervised by Registered Behaviour Therapists (RBT) and volunteers. Clinical supervision will be provided by a Senior Behaviour Therapist and a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA).


Community Aphasia Programs

Monarch House facilitates group therapy for people living with aphasia via the Halton Peel Community Aphasia Programs. Our programs involve both small and large group activities and are intended for people who want to improve their communication. As an organization, we educate the community about aphasia and provide training and support to family members, friends, and caregivers.
