The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of the social skills program "Social Skills Training" for high school students with disabilities. Six high school students with multiple disabilities, attending a private special education school, participated in he study. Social skills training was provided in 12 sessions, 20 minutes per session, one session per day, three days a week for four weeks, and a follow-up of review activity for four weeks. A single subject designed with ABC phases was used. The student behaviors were observed and recorded prior to training as Baseline, during the training as Intervention, and after the training as Maintenance. The results show that students have an increase in correctly applying the following skills: doorway etiquette, phone etiquette, and greetings during the training, however, a slight decrease is found during the follow-up to maintain the learned skills.
