Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

A multiple single-subject design research study was completed to determine the benefits of sensory regulation strategies paired with social skills training on the development of social skills among preschool-age children with autism spectrum disorder. Four participants attended four baseline and seven group intervention sessions. Three of the four participants demonstrated significant improvements in peer interactions and responding behaviors.
