Social skills groups provide an opportunity for individuals with autism to practice and improve their social skills in a safe, supportive environment.
Some groups include people with and without autism, although some groups consist only of people with autism. The groups are usually facilitated by professionals.
Social skills groups differ from social groups in that they are more focussed on the attainment of skills and are therefore likely to be more structured.
We are currently reviewing the research evidence on the use of social skills groups items for people with autism.
If you are aware of any research, or you would like to share your personal experiences of social groups, please email email@example.com Thank you.
