A Social Skills Curriculum.
Van Nooten, Nancy
This review evaluates research on the Strategies Intervention Model (SIM) developed at the Institute for Research in Learning Disabilities, University of Kansas. The model is designed to teach learning-disabled and low-achieving adolescents strategies which will enable them to learn and perform independently, show appropriate social and personal skills, earn a high school diploma, and make successful transitions to post-high school settings. The review focuses on learning strategies that enable target students to improve their social skills and generalize the use of specific social skills. The review analyzes the social competence definition, the target population, training procedures, evaluation procedures, generalization effects, and implications. The review concludes that the SIM Social Skills Curriculum appears to be a useful tool in social skills training for students who present social skills deficits. The question of generalization and long-term effect is yet to be answered as data accumulates. (Contains 23 references.) (JDD)
