Also, the previous research displayed limited success with generalization of social skills from training setting. Teaching Interaction procedure (Leaf et al., 2009) is used to teach social skills to students with ASD. This study examines the effectiveness of a group Teaching Interaction procedure to teach social skills to four participants with ASD in a school setting.
