Summary

Eight mainstreamed students with specific learning disabilities (LD) and five with general LD (8-14 years old) were trained through films, role playing techniques and token reinforcement to apply learning principles to improve the quality of their social interactions with their nonhandicapped peers. Results of observations of Ss' interactions before and after training indicated statistically significant improvements in the quality of Ss' social interactions, specifically, changes in negative nonverbal and positive verbal peer initiatives, Ss' response of reinforcing positive contacts, and peers' positive verbal and nonverbal responses.
