Most students who are identified as being at risk of, or classified as having, an emotional disturbance, display social skills deficits. In fact, the current definition for emotional disturbance in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) contains two social skills problems: (1) an inability to build or maintain satisfactory interpersonal relationships with peers or teachers, and (2) the expression of inappropriate behavior or feelings under normal circumstances. This chapter discusses how to locate, appraise, adapt, and apply empirically supported social skills interventions. It also demonstrates how to monitor the progress of students receiving social skills instruction, and how to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions employed using an evidence-based practice (EBP) perspective.
