This study examined the effects of a group-delivered, vocational social skills intervention among young adults with high-functioning autism. Participants made statistically significant improvements in social function, self-efficacy, and psychological wellness. Results support this program as a Level III evidence-based intervention, and highlight the need for additional development, validation, and application of manualized, psychosocial interventions in OT.
