Evaluation: Secret Agent Society Whole-of-Class

The Autism CRC invested in a 2-year project to extend the Secret Agent Society program from a small group context to include a whole classroom model. This will broaden the reach of the highly successful, evidence-based program and help more children on the autism spectrum and their families.

A randomised controlled trial in 20 classrooms across 4 Australian States has recently completed to evaluate efficacy of the curriculum in schools across the country. 

Outcomes expected for students on the spectrum include those found in other trials of SAS; improved social interaction skills and emotional recognition and regulation skills. It is also expected that there will be some improvement in friendship between students and tolerance of individual differences as a consequence of other students participating in the class curriculum. It is also anticipated that the skills learned will facilitate transition from primary to high school.
