Abstract (Summary)

The following pre-post, quantitative study analyzed the psychosocial functioning of adolescents with high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) after receiving a year of specialized academic interventions while attending the New Vista School in Laguna Hills, California. The psychosocial functioning of students was examined by retrieving and reviewing archived student responses to the second edition of the Behavioral Assessment Scales for Children, self-report (BASC-2 SRP), across two time periods (October and June) during the 2016 to 2017 academic year. Results indicate that psychosocial and adaptive functioning did not significantly change across the course of the school year. These research findings enhance the research evidence and knowledge base regarding changes in self-reported psychosocial functioning of adolescent students with high-functioning ASD across one academic school year.
