The study investigated the motivation for real-life social engagement in three preschool children with ASD using the experience-sampling methodology (ESM). The results showed that they had motivation for social engagement in the everyday contexts where they felt autonomous and competent and experienced social reciprocity. Further, the study demonstrated that ESM provides clinicians and caregivers a way to understand how real-life social contexts influence the children’s motivations and experiences.
