To address the requirements of children and adults, the Autism Project struggles to hire workers.
Programs to teach social skills to people with autism spectrum disorders are in high demand. One of the most popular interventions for addressing social deficiencies in people with autism spectrum condition is social skills training (SST) (Interactive Autism Network Research Findings 2011). Traditional SST gives face-to-face, in-person education on conversation, friendship, and problem-solving abilities to children with ASD in order to teach them how to engage with their peers. One of the main obstacles to treatment is the lack of skilled facilitators, who are essential to programmes aimed at improving social skills (Gordon-Lipkin et al. 2016).
There is little data on how these programmes compare to conventional in-person social skills training in terms of performance (F2F-SST). The current study compares preliminary data for BITs social skills training (BITs-SST) to F2F-SST using meta-analytic techniques.
According to King’s College London, a third of parents believe that the financial crisis will have a significant impact on their kids’ mental health.

This increases as children become older, reaching 43% of parents with kids in the 16–17 age range.
