Social impairment is one of the most predominant features of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Individuals with ASD may have fewer opportunities to engage in social interactions to practice and acquire social and play skills. Peer-mediated instructional approaches can address these concerns by teaching children and youth with ASD new social skills and increasing social opportunities within natural environments, often a primary goal of families. This module explains the evidence-based intervention, Peer-Mediated Instruction and Intervention (PMII).
