The PEERS® Certified School-Based Training Seminar is designed to instruct educators and schoolbased professionals on the administration and implementation of the educator-facilitated PEERS® for
Adolescents intervention in a school-based setting.

This certified training provides a model for evidencebased
social skills instruction in the classroom or educational setting for teens in middle school and high school (age 11-18) with ASD, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression and other social difficulties, particularly
