Transcript of Social Skills Interventions for Children with Autism

Young children with autism often show restricted ability to communicate and interact socially.
Early social interaction and play helps to lay groundwork for many school-aged skills (McClelland & Morrison, 2003; Odom et al., 2006).
The rising trend for children with special needs is to be educated alongside typically developing peers whenever possible.
Research is needed to evaluate new interventions aimed at this population.
Still pending... waiting on reliability

Social Skills Interventions for Children with Autism in Inclusive Settings
Research Questions
What kind of research is being done to support children with autism in the preschool classroom?
What do the results from these studies say about effective interventions?
What are future directions for research in this field?
Systematic review of the literature.

Reliability done in two phases

Phase I: Search

Phase II: Coding*

* Still in progress
