Teaching Students With Classic Autism Functional Social Skills in Natural SettingsA Program Based on Individualized Comprehensive Assessment and Evidence-Based Practices embeds social skills within lessons that impact real-life social situations, such as learning to do something nice for others, working on a classroom project, or waiting in a cafeteria line.
