This study examined the effect of a social skills intervention. Skillstreaming, on the social skills of six elementary-aged students identified with specific learning disabilities. Each participant's teacher rated the child's social skills pre- and post-intervention using the Social Skills Rating System and the Teacher/Staff Checklist from the Skillstreaming manual. The participants received small group instruction focusing on four social skills. Following the intervention, the participants significantly increased their overall prosocial skill development and their use of the social skills and significantly decreased their problem behaviors. All five teachers indicated that the intervention was effective and acceptable for the students involved in the group.
