Social Skills Deficits as Primary Learning Disabilities: A Note on Problems with the ICLD Diagnostic Criteria.
Forness, Steven R.; Kavale, Kenneth A.
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v6 n1 p44-49 1991
The Interagency Committee on Learning Disabilities' definition of learning disabilities implies that the presence of social skills deficits alone suffices for diagnosis, even in the absence of academic difficulties. Overlaps between this criterion and eligibility criteria for emotional disturbance are discussed along with implications for assessment and treatment. (Author/PB)
