摘要

Stable, positive relationships with colleagues or supervisors are difficult for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to maintain. Little was known in teaching social skills of students with ASD in workplace, not mentioning for those who have ASD as well as talent traits. This pilot case study aimed to use a package of cognitive behavioral training, applied behavior analysis (ABA) guidelines, and secondary-tier generic video modeling to teach workplace social skills to five young adults with ASD and talent traits. The intervention lasted for 8 weeks, with 3 hours of intervention each week. Per ABA guidelines, the authors focused on the talent traits and preferred activities of the participants with ASD, and structured the training to include a reward system and opportunities to practice learned skills in the community. Analysis using nonparametric statistics revealed a significant difference between the means of pretest and posttest scores (Z = 2.032, p < .05) on a curriculum-based assessment. Significant improvements among the participants were noted on their assessments of all five target skills, on the teacher log, and through interviews. This study requires further replication with rigorous design to make causal conclusion.
