Environmental Factors that Influence Emotion Regulation in Adolescents with ASD; a literary review of intervention types

Started May 26, 2022

Abstract or project description

Research Question/Hypothesis: Emotion regulation in adolescents with ASD is impacted by environmental factors. What environmental factors have the most significant impact on emotion regulation, and what interventions are most helpful? Aims/Goals of this Research: With this project we hope to research the influencing factors of emotion regulation for adolescents (ages 12-17), with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and what intervention types have been shown to be successful for this population. This research is important because parents and caregivers should be aware of influencing environmental factors for their adolescents with ASD. This research will help raise awareness for environmental factors that have a negative and positive impact on emotion regulation and what intervention types are most successful in adolescents with ASD.
