Girls Night Out
GNO is social and self-care skills program specifically designed for females with autism or other related developmental disabilities. Since 2008, GNO has been offering skills groups specifically for adolescent females with and without autism or other related developmental disabilities. We are scaling up to expand GNO services, which will include a broader age range, increase the number of skills groups and community events, and diversify services to address other unique needs of girls with ASD/DD (e.g. women’s health, dating/healthy relationships, mental health, employment, college planning, transition). Skills group interventions, community events, and certified facilitator trainings will include fees for related activities and services. This also provides a platform for families registering for an event to pay online and to secure payment prior to the event.
