The research question addressed is how do special education teachers describe their level of preparedness teaching social skills to students with high functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome (AS)? Through a qualitative research survey, the author documents critical areas in which special educators delivering social skill instruction feel the most and least prepared. Successful elements to a special education program that teaches and helps students on the spectrum to generalize critical social skills rest in a program that is full of educators that are fully prepared and have a complete understanding of the social elements needed for independence in adulthood.
