Culturally Responsive Social Skills Intervention for Korean American Children with Autism

The purposes of this mixed-methods study were (1) to examine the effectiveness of pivotal response treatment (PRT) on social behaviors of Korean-American children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in their community settings and (2) to analyze stakeholders’ perceptions (i.e., families and community members) regarding satisfaction and feasibility. The results indicated positive changes in social skills of both peers and children with ASD and high stakeholders-satisfactions. (1) learn about and discuss the socially and culturally responsive social skills intervention strategies.   (2)understand the effectiveness of pivotal response treatment (PRT) on social behaviors of Korean-American children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in their community settings. (evaluated using a single subject design)   and (3) evaluate the cultural responsiveness and social validity of an evidence based social skill intervention (Pivotal response treatment) for Korean-American students with ASD and their communities. Particularly, participants will be able to access to stakeholders’ perceptions (i.e., parents, siblings, community members and the children with ASD) regarding feasibility and satisfaction on its goal setting, procedures, and social behavior changes.
