Title: The Relationship between social intelligence and behavioral functioning in students with learning disabilities
Author: Vreeland, James
Abstract: Clinicians suggest that differences between the nonverbal Picture Arrangement (PA) and verbal Comprehension (C) WISC subtests reflect poor social perception, understanding, or action. In this study, data from 79 children with learning disabilities were subjected to repeated measures MANOVA to examine PA and C social sensitivity. Although PA and C scores correlated minimally with Teacher (TRF) and Parent (CBCL) reported behavior problems, those who scored significantly higher on PA than C (PA >C) displayed more TRF Internalizing, Withdrawal, Social, and Thought Problems than the C > PA group. The PA > C group had more TRF Withdrawal and Thought Problems than the PA = C control group. Group C = PA displayed more Total and Delinquency problems than C > PA and PA > C. Implications will be discussed.
