This abstract describes the social characteristics observed between students with ASD and their typically developing peers in an inclusive, interest-based after-school club. The results of this study can inform the profession and related fields of the impact that inclusive, strengths-based contexts have on facilitating social interactions and promoting meaningful participation in nonacademic occupations for children with ASD.
