Summary:
Children with autism often have deficits in social reciprocity, the ability to participate in long chains of back and forth interactions with a social partner. Research has shown that deficits in social communication skills, such as social reciprocity, can have lifelong negative impacts on the lives of individuals with autism. Routines-based intervention for young children with autism is supported by research and educational law. However, there are limited studies showing the effects of routines-based intervention for children with autism. There are no studies that address social reciprocity using routinesbased intervention for children with autism. This preliminary investigation explored if parent training on six strategies to promote social reciprocity within three everyday routines would increase the parents' use of the strategies and also increase the social reciprocity ofthe children. Parent use of the strategies and the social reciprocity of the children were maintained after the intervention was withdrawn.
