High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder In Youth

The mental health field has placed increasing emphasis on the development and implementation of interventions to address the core deficits of youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2008). The primary features of Autism include impairment in social interaction, communication and restricted interests (DSM-IV, American Psychiatric Association, 2000). Although deficits in each of these three domains translate to pronounced functional impairment for these youth, impaired social functioning has been demonstrated to be the most persistent and permeating challenge throughout development, Social competence is the area of greatest vulnerability for youth with ASD regardless of their cognitive capacity. Impaired social functioning has been shown to be the most persistent and permeating challenge for youth with High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (HFASD) throughout development; therefore various interventions have been developed to target these social deficits. Impaired social functioning has been shown to be the most persistent and permeating challenge for youth with High-Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (HFASD) throughout development; therefore various interventions have been developed to target these social deficits. Research examining the efficacy of manualized social skills intervention programs remains limited and treatment outcome has been predominantly studied in academic research settings. Moreover, conclusions regarding the efficacy of social skills training programs have been mixed; suggesting therapy must address more than just social skills.
