AbstractThe present study explored the relationship between social impairment and school adjustment of students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in mainstream schools. Participants were 263 primary school students and 95 junior secondary school students. Results showed that students with ASD scored significantly lower on multiple domains of school adjustment including social, emotional and learning adaptation compared to students with typical development. Furthermore, results indicated that social impairment was significantly and negatively associated with school adjustment. Implications for practice and recommendations for future research are discussed.
