Project end date: Ongoing project

Contact project organizer

PEERS is one of the few evidence-based social skills interventions for adolescents on the spectrum. However, neurodiversity advocates have been increasingly critical of the use of social skills programs for folks on the spectrum, due to the potentially negative social-emotional consequences of social camouflaging. Thus, this study aims to explore the social validity from the perspectives of adolescents on the spectrum.
