Services for Health Professionals
Awareness, Education, and Training
As a mental health professional, it is important to understand the needs and strengths of students with invisible differences. You do a wonderful job of providing the necessary support for these young adults to thrive in the future. We would love to assist you and the families you serve through our many programs.
Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) is a 14-week, evidence-based, social skills intervention developed at UCLA for teenagers and young adults with neurobehavioral disorders who want to improve their ability to make and keep friends. A parent or another caring adult attends a concurrent, weekly workshop. The program is led by certified professionals. At Center for Companies That Care, we are holding sessions at our office, starting this fall. For more information, visit our PEERS® page.
We value research as a fundamental strategy because we want to to make every adolescent and young adult in our program be employable and employed in a role matching their interests and abilities. The more we learn about students with invisible differences, the more we can help them complete their education and prepare for productive careers. Our research reveals the scope of the issue and the value of the Invisible Differences program. For more information, please visit our Invisible Differences Research page.
