Students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), though academically capable, can have difficulty succeeding in college. Evidence-based intervention to promote effective problem solving may improve quality of life, as well as success and satisfaction in college. This study adapted and piloted a group-based cognitive-behavioral intervention program, Problem Solving Skills: 101 (PSS: 101), to teach effective problem solving ability in college students with ASD. Therapists met all treatment integrity objectives across sessions, four of the five participants completed at least eight of the nine sessions, and between-session assignments were generally completed (83 % completion rate), indicating a high level of treatment adherence. Two participants demonstrated reliable improvement post-intervention in problem solving ability and subjective distress. Further evaluation to assess efficacy of the intervention is warranted.
