This study explores effective techniques for teaching a person with autism behavioral and social skills, and shares research that suggests adaptive theatre techniques are a supportive option for people with autism. By utilizing scholarly research, the goal of this study is to: identify, analyze, and evaluate successful techniques for teaching students with autism, and prove that adaptive theatrical techniques are an effective resource for teaching people with autism behavioral and social skills. There are many successful techniques available when teaching an individual with autism. I plan to examine traditional techniques when teaching individuals with autism, analyze the many benefits that adaptive theatrical techniques offer individuals with autism, and provide examples of adaptive theatrical techniques and their efficacy for improving behavioral and social skills for people with autism.
