Social Skills in the Context of Learning Disability Definitions: A Reply to Gresham and Elliott and Directions for the Future.
Conte, Richard; Andrews, Jac
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v26 n3 p146-53 Mar 1993
In response to Gresham and Elliott (1989), who concluded that a social skills deficit should not constitute a learning disability, this paper claims that current definitions allow for including social skills deficits. They propose limiting the definition of learning disabilities to intentional learning contexts, thus excluding social skills deficits. (Author/DB)
