The aim of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of a Spanish version of the Social Skills Scale of the Social Skills Rating System-Teacher Form (SSRS-T) with a sample of children attending elementary schools in Puerto Rico (N = 357). The SSRS-T was developed for use with English-speaking children. Although translated, adapted, and administered in Spanish, little was known about its psychometric properties. The authors evaluated the applicability of the Spanish SSRS-T by examining specifically its internal consistency, test-retest reliability, parent-teacher cross-informant correlations, and construct validity. Findings suggest that the Spanish SSRS-T is a valid and reliable instrument and support its potential utility in the early identification of social difficulties that may hinder the social, emotional, and academic adjustment of Latino children. (Contains 4 tables and 3 notes.)
