Facilitated by Doris Germain, an Autism Specialist, on alternating months, in response to interest by participants in KindTree’s Support Group for adults on the autism spectrum. The classes and outings are designed for adults with high-functioning autism or Aspergers who can get around independently in the community. The Autism Society of Oregon will help subsidize entrance fees. The Social Skills Class will take place on the 3rd Monday of alternating months, starting February 16, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on 13th and Pearl. The Social Skills Class will take place in February, April, June, October and December. There will be no social skills class in August. Starting March 16, the Social Activity Outings will take place on alternating months on the third Friday evening, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., or during the day on Saturday, depending on the activity. The Social Skills Class will choose the activity for the following month. In 2009, social outings will take place in March, May, July, September, and November.
