April – May Skills Groups Applications Open Today!

March 6, 2023, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

A reminder that the application window for skills groups opens today

The application window for our next Executive Functioning (EF) Skills Group and Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) is now OPEN!

The Executive Functioning (EF) group will run Tuesdays, April 4 through May 9. The Acceptance & Commitment Training (ACT) group will run Wednesdays, April 5 through May 10.

How Do I Apply?

Because we keep the groups small, Skills Groups are in high demand. Enrolment is limited to 4-6 participants per group and individuals may only register for one group at a time to allow for the greatest participation.

All applications are completed online. When the application window is open, the link to apply will be LIVE in a number of places.

  1. On our Events calendar – HERE or on any of the Skills Groups event pages.
  2. On the Skills Groups web page

You can navigate to any of these pages – the link is the same. If you don’t see a LIVE link, it is not active yet.

What are Skills Groups?

Skills Groups are skill development workshops that are facilitated by two Sinneave staff members (one is an autistic self-advocate). In each 90-minute workshop, participants learn a variety of strategies that are foundational to success in various aspects of daily life. They are then given opportunities to practice the strategies with the support of the facilitators and other group members.

Are Skills Groups for Me?

Skills Groups are best suited for autistic and neurodiverse individuals who

  • Are 15 years of age and older.
  • Self-identify (or have been diagnosed) as being neuro-diverse and/or autistic.
  • Are able to commit to 6 weeks of programming (90 minutes to 2 hours) once weekly.
  • Are interested in learning and practicing key strategies that can have a positive impact on their daily routines.
  • Can communicate verbally.
  • Are willing to practice reflecting and sharing their thoughts with the group.
  • Can reliably and independently participate in a group setting (e.g., arrive on time, communicate with group leader if you are unable to attend, do not require a one-to-one assistant).
  • Will commit to keeping an open mind, and actively participating in program activities.
  • Have reliable transportation arrangements to and from the program

If you can answer “Yes” to each of the statements above, our Skills Groups may be a good fit for you.

Please Note: Skills Groups are not intended for support workers, aides, caregivers, or other professionals.
