Difficulty with social skills is often a significant challenge for those on the autism spectrum. These challenges lead to difficulty communicating with others and with making and keeping friends. Social skills groups (SSGs) are used to teach individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) ways to appropriately interact with typically developing peers. A wide range of social skills may be taught through SSGs. In this module, step-by step instructions consisting of ten steps are provided to help teachers/practitioners use existing resources to implement social skills group instruction that is based on informal needs assessment and data collection for identified goals.
