Social skills are a significant challenge for people with autism and typically become an important focus of their behavior therapy. This groundbreaking compendium, written by the leading practitioners in the field, examines the most current and effective methods of teaching social skills to children and adults with ASD. The authors present various evidence-based approaches, and include case studies to illustrate how each strategy is used in practice.
Examples of the topic covered include how to:
• Train parents on increasing a child's engagement and play
• Distinguish social skills from communication/language skills
• Combine approaches in small group settings with typically developing peers
• Target core deficits of autism with Pivotal Response Treatment
• Use conventional scripts, video modeling, and peer-mediated interventions
• Employ naturalistic teaching strategies
• Promote and develop specific social skills
• Collect and analyze data and chart progress
ABA therapist, teachers, early interventionists, SLPs, college students, and families can use this authoritative book to prepare, implement, and modify a social skills treatment plan and monitor its success.
