A Helpful Bug In Your Ear: Covert Audio Coaching Shows Promise to Help Young Adults with ASD to Navigate Peer Conversations

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that affects how people communicate and process information. People with ASD may have difficulty with aspects of social communication like starting and maintaining conversations, taking turns in conversation, asking questions, or interpreting humor and sarcasm. Due to these challenges, young adults with ASD may have difficulty making friends or getting involved in peer groups. Young women with ASD, in particular, may face additional challenges with socialization and self-image.
