2011Bacon Street provides services to adolescents and their families affected by substance abuse and/or mental health issues in Virginia. Bacon Street has seen a significant increase in adolescents with high-functioning Autism. Many are in mainstream classrooms and are struggling with social skills, peer relationships, control of emotions, or managing behaviors. Bacon Street will provide a 10-week, structured social skills group for people with high-functioning Autism which will include family members, as research indicates that including family members promotes generalization of skills.
