Abstract

Learning disabled (LD) and nondisabled (NLD) children were shown a series of soap opera vignettes in order to test their comprehension of interpersonal interactions. Results showed that the LD group consistently made more social comprehension errors than did the NLD group. The contribution of LD children's social comprehension problems to their lack of social acceptance is discussed.
