What great responses from both of you! I love the idea of doing a social skills group with any SLP. We never managed that. As a psych, I had 5-7 (big) schools on my caseload (one was an elementary school of 1100 by itself!) and I couldn't commit to regular group session As a counselor, I did some social skills groups for kids with behavioral and attention issues. We didn't have any ASD kids there except my own kid It wasn't all the effective since it was during the lunch time I had mentioned in another post.

I totally agree that social skills are best taught in context, and it makes sense to extend the lessons in the child's classroom with the teacher. A focus on social connections and interactions is a good foundation for learning skills in general, I think, and learning to get along with people.
