The Chatter Program™ is a community-based social skills group therapy program that is led by a speech-language pathologist. Volunteers receive training on autism, social communication, and neurodiversity. They learn to develop their own skills for successful social interactions with people who have difficulties with social communication.
Over the years peer mentors have played a significant role in creating a more inclusive society, being an ally for autistic people and those with communication disorders in the community.
Be in student registered in grade 9 or higher.
Attend a mandatory orientation and training session before volunteering.
Be available for a full semester where attendance is required every week.
