The Social Misperception Syndrome in Children with Learning Disabilities: Social Causes versus Neurological Variables.
Spafford, Carol Sullivan; Grosser, George S.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v26 n3 p178-89,198 Mar 1993
This article synthesizes the research defining social problems of some children with learning disabilities, especially the role of communication skills deficits. Traditional emphases on family dysfunction, school failure, or personality disturbances are seen to be negated by research which suggests that neural aberrations trigger deficient language processing and consequently unsatisfactory social interactions.
