This chapter reviews the current knowledge about the social lives of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), including their social interactions with peers and the development of friendships. It identifies a number of challenges that children with ASDs face—particularly in school settings with the general population of children—and then examines the effectiveness of current interventions for children with ASDs, with a focus on active ingredients of intervention. Finally, it suggests some avenues for future research in this area.
