Children living with autism require a variety of interventions-the least of which involves social skill training. As professionals, we must move these children away from sitting and discussing skills and into a practical application during a fun and interesting activities.
Whether in the private clinic or school, professionals have the ability to conduct social skills group. Social skill deficits are a given in children with autism, unfortunately, wide-spread research on necessary components of a program are not available. In separate studies, Bellini, Krasny, and Williams-White have identified promising strategies. These strategies such as role-playing, behavioral monitoring/feedback, and learning in sequence/progression and more will be discussed in this session.
