Practical Social Skills for Autism Spectrum Disorders: Designing Child-Specific Interventions

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2013 - Spring


by Kathleen Koenig, M.S.N., APRN, associate research scientist in the Child Study Center (W.W. Norton & Company) Koenig addresses ways to help children with autism spectrum disorders develop “social repertoires” that they can call upon in a range of day-to-day situations, from the classroom to the lunchroom to the family dinner table. The author uses case vignettes to illustrate the application of each intervention, suggests what to do when a child’s response is inadequate, and offers a helpful guide to measuring the child’s progress.
