The Remaking Recess programme is an intervention that focuses on increasing social engagement between children with autism (ages 5-11 years old) and their typical peers during the less structured times of the school day.
Trained interventionists work with school staff members (particularly the one-on-one aides) to employ strategies that will increase the quantity and quality of peer engagement.
The interventions take place at school, in the playground during playtime (recess) and lunch for 30 minutes over 8 weeks for a total of 14-16 sessions.
