The Effectiveness of the Skillsstreaming Social Skills Program for Students with Learning and Language Disabilities
Timochko, Melissa
ProQuest LLC, Psy.D. Dissertation, Fairleigh Dickinson University
The "Skillstreaming" Social Skills Program was piloted to determine its effects on learning and language disabled students' perception of their social skills. Teacher and parent perceptions of these students' use of social skills were also examined. Seventh and eighth grade students (N = 16) from a city public school completed social skills checklists before and after the program was implemented. Students were randomly assigned to an intervention (N = 8) or control group (N = 8). Teachers also completed social skills checklists pre and post intervention to measure the use of social skills. Parent participation was requested, but due to lack of involvement, the data were not used. Results on the Skillstreaming Checklist (Goldstein & McGinnis, 1997) indicated that there was no significant difference between pre and post-test scores overall for students or teachers. However, significance was found on several individual skills that were specifically taught throughout the treatment period.
