Merrell, Kenneth W.
Journal of School Psychology, v29 n3 p207-17 Fall 1991
Compared social-behavioral competencies of 40 learning-disabled, 40 low-achieving, and 40 typical elementary school students. Teacher ratings using Walker-McConnell Scale of Social Competence and School Adjustment revealed that learning-disabled and low-achieving students were both rated as having significantly lower levels of social competence and behavioral adjustment than typical students. Found no significant differences between learning-disabled and low-achieving students. (Author/NB)
