Interventions for Social Skills
- 271 Downloads
Social development is inextricably linked to a student’s school success and his or her long-term social acceptance and adjustment. While most children develop social skills by observing the real-life modeling of parents, siblings, extended family, and teachers, as well as daily interactions with their peers; children with behavioral problems often have not developed or do not satisfactorily demonstrate these important skills. In fact, inability to establish and maintain satisfactory peer and teacher relationships is a key defining characteristic of behaviorally disordered children—unfortunately resulting in profound implications throughout their lives. Many students with attention problems, oppositional or defiant behaviors, aggressive behaviors, or those who annoy and bother other students are disliked or rejected by their peers. In addition, students with learning disabilities, autistic disorders, or internalizing disorders are sometimes teased by peers and may have significant difficulties making and keeping friends.
