This study explored the differences in the rated social skills of elementary-aged students at-risk for emotional/behavioural disorders (E/BD) based on severity of academic difficulties. Teachers nominated students at-risk for E/BD who were classified into four groups of academic difficulty based on the Wide Range Achievement Test-3. Students, parents, and teachers completed the Social Skills Rating System. Teachers' ratings indicated that academic strengths did not significantly affect perceptions of students' social competence; all children were rated with notable social skills deficits. Consistent with previous positive research, self-ratings were uniformly positive across groups. Parents' ratings indicated highest social competence for children with most severe academic deficits.
