Gresham, Frank M.; Elliott, Stephen N.
Journal of Reading, Writing, and Learning Disabilities International, v3 n2 p131-48 1987
Learning disabled (LD) students are often poorly accepted by peers and exhibit deficits in social skills. Research on LD students' social behavior is reviewed and the definition, assessment, and classification of social skill deficits are discussed. Needed improvements in professional training, in practice, and in public policy relating to LD services are suggested. (Author/VW)
