Evidence supporting the effectiveness of the PEERS® social skills intervention for adolescents with autism spectrum disorder is relatively strong. Less is known about whether the duration of the program impacts participant outcomes. The current study compared outcomes of participants randomly assigned to participate in an accelerated version of PEERS that met twice weekly for 7 weeks (n = 11) or the traditional PEERS program that met once weekly for 14 weeks (n = 10). The accelerated PEERS group demonstrated improvements consistent with previous research on the program, and treatment response did not differ significantly between the accelerated PEERS and traditional PEERS groups. Together, findings provide preliminary evidence that PEERS is effective when administered as a 7-week program.
