Social Competence as a Multifaceted Construct: How Do Students with Learning Disabilities Fare?
Vaughn, Sharon; Haager, Diane
Learning Disability Quarterly, v17 n4 p253-66 Fall 1994
Social competence of 239 students with and without learning disabilities (LD) was followed from kindergarten through fifth grade. Students with LD demonstrated the same trends in social competence as non-LD students. Students with LD differed significantly from average-high-achieving non-LD students on social skills and behavior problems, but not on peer acceptance or self-concept. (Author/PB)
