Social engagement for autistic kids

Parent Interventions

Preschoolers with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can improve their social interactive skills, play and conversation through effective peer engagement. The finding is based on a study by researchers at Bar-Ilan University. The major goal of Preschool Peer Social Intervention (PPSI) was to increase social engagement for preschoolers with ASD during mixed interactions with their peers with ASD and those without. The key results showed that interaction, play and conversation intervention groups improved over time, each mainly in its own targeted peer-engagement domain. Preschoolers with ASD demonstrated more complex social play capabilities, better interaction skills and more adaptive social conversations, leading to better social inclusion with their typical peers.
