Abstract :
The paper focuses on training and assessment of the social cultural awareness in Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) children. The ASD children studied were those who had gone through (a) model based on clinical treatment with all staffs are adequately trained, and (b) a concentrated treatment model involving special educator and parents with intensive supervision only. The research study is primarily based on analysis and examination of behavioral symptoms of children with ASD in India. The one to one ABA interventions to create social cultural awareness were given over a period of 3 years to ASD children. During the sessions with ABA interventions the major aim was to measure the child’s behavior towards social cultural awareness, using multimedia tools related to study of behavioral symptoms. Major difficulties faced during the 3 years of study was the absenteeism and irregularity of children due to factors like; children discontinuing the centers, family issues, change of educators etc. Remarkable growth in adaptive behavior was observed in ASD kids and the results showed substantial positive variances across age. Behavioral interventions given to ASD children can help in creating the social cultural awareness among them.
