Social and Emotional Learning for Children with Learning Disability: Implications for Inclusion
Cavioni, Valeria; Grazzani, Ilaria; Ornaghi, Veronica
International Journal of Emotional Education, v9 n2 p100-109 Nov 2017
This paper discusses the key role of social and emotional learning programmes for children with Learning Disability (LD). The first part of the paper discusses the difficulties students with learning disability may encounter in their education, such as issues related to peer group acceptance, friendship and social isolation, low self-efficacy and self-esteem, and externalized and internalized behavior problems. The relationship between social and emotional learning programmes and learning disability is then discussed, underlining the benefits of social and emotional learning for students with LD. The paper concludes by highlighting the need for universal social and emotional learning as a vehicle for the academic and social inclusion of students with LD.
