AUT 571 - Understanding and Remediating Social and Play Skill Deficits in Learners with Autism

Social and play skills are among the most difficult to teach, and are the areas in which clinicians have made the most modest gains. In addition, many intervention strategies used are not empirically validated. Furthermore, many treatments are used as packaged interventions, making it difficult to isolate the effective elements of instruction. More recent ideas about “best practices” in educational and clinical approaches to assessment and intervention in these areas will be emphasized. Students will explore empirically validated treatments and evidence based practice issues related to intervention in the realms of play and social skills.
