Prater, Mary Anne; Serna, Loretta; Nakamura, Kayleen K.
Education and Treatment of Children, v22 n1 p19-35 Feb 1999
This study compared instruction in three social skills (giving positive feedback, contributing to discussion, and accepting negative feedback) by either a special-education teacher or peers with learning disabilities. Both groups improved in all three skills. Results suggest that social skill instruction by peers may be as effective and more efficient than when taught solely by teachers. (Author/DB)
