This paper provides a variety of appropriate social interventions to use with preschool-age children with mild Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Regardless of his or her diagnostic label, each individual child requires an individualized approach to treatment. Typically, multiple interventions are necessary for a successful program.
The questions this project will address include: (a) What are some possible social interventions to use with preschool-age children who have mild autism spectrum disorders, (b) what research supports current successful social interventions, ( c) which social interventions could provide the most benefits and success, and (d) how can inclusion and interacting with typically developing peers assist in implementing interventions?
The recommendations described in this paper include information for teachers and paraprofessionals who work with preschool-age children with mild autism spectrum disorder. The purpose of the recommendations is to share the findings regarding different types of social interventions that are available in order to best meet each individual child's needs.
