This project will develop an adaptive intervention to improve ​social connectedness​, academic engagement, and other skills among school-aged children with autism spectrum disorder​. Treatment for each participant includes some combination of a playground-based intervention, a classroom-based intervention, a peer-mediated intervention, and a parent-assisted intervention.​ This pilot project will address feasibility and acceptability concerns and will provide preliminary data for a full-scale SMART.
