Sweeney, Augustin and Associates recognizes the potential challenges our clients face in developing peer relationships. As a practice we are committed to facilitating growth in this area and supporting our clients in developing meaningful friendships. Our peer-based sessions combine insight from both our social workers and speech and language pathologists in order to integrate the domains of social reciprocity and social communication.

Clients are matched with peers based on multiple factors such as age, level of support needed, and interests in order to optimize the potential for a friendship to develop.

Current research strongly supports the value of making connections between therapy and home. Our practice works to match clients based on geographic location and ability to access one another in order to allow for out-of-office interaction between sessions.
