Abstract

This study explores social outcomes for adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in comparison to adults with developmental disabilities other than ASD by investigating the relationships between the constructs Social Participation and Relationships, Social Determination, and Personal Control. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to test a model of the relationships among constructs of interest and structured means analysis was used to test for mean group differences on these constructs. Results indicated that individuals with ASD had lower levels of Social Determination and Friendships than individuals with other developmental disabilities. SEM analyses yielded significant relationships between constructs. Results provide insight with regards to novel statistical, theoretical, and practical approaches to the study of social outcomes for individuals with ASD.

This was a post hoc analysis conducted to address the research question with regards to group differences in social relationships between individuals with ASD and individuals with DD other than ASD. Due to the nature of the derived measurement model, this research question could not be adequately addressed without some temporary adjustment to the model to create a latent variable more directly related to social relationships than “Social Participation and Relationships”.
