Review of Social Skills Training Groups for Youth with Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism
Cappadocia, M. Catherine; Weiss, Jonathan A.
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v5 n1 p70-78 Jan-Mar 2011
Although social skills deficits represent core symptoms of Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism, there is limited research investigating the empirical validity of social skills interventions currently being used with these populations. This literature review compares three types of social skills training groups: traditional, cognitive behavioral, and parent-inclusive. The studies included in this review provide preliminary evidence for the efficacy of group-based social skills interventions among children and youth diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, although few used comparison group or randomized control trial designs. Limitations within the literature, as well as future directions, are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
