Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has become increasingly prevalent in the United States over the last few decades. Children diagnosed with ASD are in need of interventions to help them learn the necessary social skills for communicating and interacting with others appropriately. There are many evidence-based interventions available for school personnel to utilize when teaching social skills. Three school-based social skills interventions that can be used are visual supports, social skills training, and social narratives. Implementing these interventions in a studen's education can benefit them significantly. These interventions can help students handle the transition and routine changes in a school day, create relationships with peers, communicate more effectively, decrease problem behaviors, and much more.
