The purpose of this study was to determine whether learning disabled boys with social/behavioral problems and learning disabled boys without social/behavioral problems differ from each other and from a group of nondisabled boys in the nonverbal signals they emit during social interaction. Thirty-seven, third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade boys were videotaped during an individually administered interview. A subsequent analysis of videotapes for the presence or absence of 31 nonverbal behaviors revealed that only one of the 31 variables differed significantly among the groups. These results suggest that there is little difference in the nonverbal behaviors displayed by the three groups of students under investigation.
