Assessing Social Skills Deficits, Part One and Part Two

This is a Masters of Special Education course work assignment about applying Effective-Practice Social Skill Assessment Procedures.

By definition, children and youth with emotional, social, and behavioral disorders have significant social skill deficits and experience social interaction difficulties. These learners commonly struggle to understand and follow basic rules of social conduct, adhere to standard and accepted social protocol, and all too frequently they display unskilled and inappropriate social initiations and responses. Forming and maintaining age-appropriate adult and peer relationships, displaying appropriate school and community social skills (such as following rules and abiding by traditional classroom routines and accepted conduct), and displaying and using age-expected personal responsibility and self-management behaviors are common problems. Consequences of these difficulties can be significant. Without intervention and support, these students are rejected by peers and adults, and their difficulties in relating and connecting to others is exacerbated.

Teaching social skills and strengthening social interaction opportunities for learners with emotional, social, and behavioral disorders is no easy task. Yet, based on application of evidence-based social skill training and support methods, educators and related service personnel can make significant progress in assisting students in understanding and applying social skills. Outcomes of these efforts are the enhanced capacity to positively interact with others. This module focuses on application of strategies and supports that lead to enhanced social skills and social acceptance.
