LEVEL: Advanced


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) now affects 1 in 59 children. As this number continues to grow, so does the concern regarding the impact ASD has on social functioning. Between the ages of 5 and 12, a child must learn crucial skills in order to appropriately interact with their environment. While these skills may not be specifically taught, they continue to develop and change with every interaction in the individual’s environment including those with family, peers, teachers, etc.

At this developmental level, a child’s social skills are evolving and increasing to prepare them for independence. The social skills that the child acquires at this age will impact adolescence and adulthood. Children with autism experience significant challenges in the acquisition and growth of social skills. Among some of the challenges experienced include deficits in executive skills, social cues, and social rules.

Specific deficits include:
• Impulse control
• Organization
• Time-management
• Theory of mind
• Self-monitoring
• Body language
• Courtesy
• Remembering and attending to detail
• Many other basic social skills

Research has focused on a variety of teaching methods in order to increase developmental skills in children who have social skills deficits. A variety of evidenced-based behavior modification practices have increased appropriate social skills in elementary-aged children. While some practices have successfully increased social skills in this population, other interventions require additional evidence to prove effectiveness of treatment.

This recorded event will total 120 minutes with a review of practice and methodology designed for teachers, paraprofessionals, BCaBAs and BCBAs working with persons with autism and/or supervising direct treatment staff, and other professionals working with children with autism and related disorders.

Upon completion of Elementary School Social Skills: Predictors of future success (Part 2 of 4), participants will:

  • Identify the social skills that elementary-aged children with autism may lack.
  • Describe when to begin teaching social skills and why each skill is necessary.
  • List several evidenced-based strategies to teach social skills.
