Abstract: Social participation is essential to well-being. For the young children, family represents the most important mediator between social environment and himself. However, children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), through their particular difficulties, have limited social experiences. There is few research related to social cognition and social participation of the young children with ASD. In this study, a review of scientific literature was done to explore the link between social cognition and social participation of young children with ASD. After that, an exploratory study asked parents about their perception of their ASD child’s social participation. It seems that social participation is dependent on opportunities offered by the environments and also related to family adaptive strategies. A theoretical model for social participation of the young children with ASD emerged from the data and will guide future directions for best family support.
