Introduction: Children with autism spectrum disorder have many problems with social skills.
Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of behavioral therapy tactics training in improving and increasing social communication and social interaction in autism students.
Method: This study was performed by a semi-experimental method of pre-test and post-test with a control group. The statistical population included all students with autism with 7 to 12 years of age who referred to the Tolo Center for Disorders in Ghaeat in 2018. Out of them, 16 autism students were selected by available sampling method. Subjects underwent 9 sessions of behavioral therapy tactics based on the ABA protocol (for 2 months). The research tool was Gilliam Autism Scale (Garz-3) (2014), which was completed before and after the intervention by the parents of the students. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS software version 22 and inferential statistics, correlation coefficient and t-test.
Results: The results showed that behavioral therapy techniques led to improvement and increased social interaction and social interaction in autism students (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Therefore, it can be concluded that behavioral therapy techniques can be an effective way to improve the capacity and improve students in the self. This in itself confirms that these students should not be left alone without a well-codified curriculum that fits the needs of each child.
