Adolescents with ASD have difficulties initiating social interactions, which affects their peer engagement. This study aimed to identify features of missed social initiation (initiations receiving no response) in adolescents with ASD and typical development (TD). We observed social initiations of 11 students (ASD = 6; TD = 5, 6th to 7th grade) in an inclusive after-school club. Participants’ missed social initiations and their recipients, purposes, and types were analyzed.
