Profiles of Social Competence among Low-Income African American Preschool Children.
Mendez, Julia L.; Fantuzzo, John; Cicchetti, Dante
Child Development, v73 n4 p1085-1100 Jul-Aug 2002
Investigated relations between children's attributes and peer play competence among African American preschoolers attending Head Start. Identified six distinctive profiles of personal attributes linked to adaptation in social functioning. Children with highly adaptable temperaments, strong ability to approach new situations, and above average vocabulary development showed the highest peer social competence. Inspection of the profiles revealed within-group variability and illustrated the differential importance of temperament, regulation, and language constructs. (Author/KB)
