Using an Extracurricular Physical Activity Program to Enhance Social Skills.
Bluechardt, Mary H.; Shephard, Roy J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n3 p160-69 Mar 1995
An individualized physical activity program with a strong social skills component was implemented with 45 students (ages 8 to 10) with learning disabilities. Participants' gains in self-ratings of competence and teacher ratings of social behavior were no larger than gains of control students receiving comparable attention through individualized academic instruction. Time effects on social behaviors persisted following treatment. (Author/DB)
