Description

This study examines the relationship between levels of social anxiety and ability to perceive (social awareness) and interpret social cues (social cognition) among young adults with ASD. Understanding the connection between young adults� social anxiety and difficulty decoding and deconstructing their social world, will inform clinicians and researchers about the importance of focusing on these social deficits during interventions intending to reduce social anxiety.
