Children's Friendship Training program

The Children's Friendship Training progam is a multi-componenet, parent-assisted intervention designed to improve social skills among children with autism.

During each group session children learn a new skill, practice with group members, receive coaching on their play skills and are given a homework assignment in which they try out their newly learned skill.

The progam was developed by staff at the UCLA in Los Angeles, California.
