Andy Bondy, Ph.D.

Autism Partnership is sharing their method for designing and conducting behaviorally based social skills groups for individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The book is divided into three sections: 1) Introductory Information, 2) Running Behaviorally Based Social Skills Groups, and 3) Curriculum.

Within the first section the reader will find overviews of Applied Behavior Analysis, social behavior, Autism Spectrum Disorder, the Autism Partnership Method, and research evaluating the use of social skills groups. The second section provides the reader with direction in developing, running, and evaluating their own social skills group. Finally, section three provides an extensive curriculum, with detailed programs and goals, for running a behaviorally based social skills group.
