This investigation assessed the effects of social skill training using a structured learning model on the behavior of three children with behavioral disorders. Specifically, the acquisition, maintenance, and generalization of target skills were measured across an entire school year using a multiple probe design across behaviors. In addition, negative responses were measured to determine if they would covary with the social skills. Results show an increase in frequency for most skill areas, an inverse relationship across negative behaviors, maintenance over time, and moderate levels of generalization to nontreatment settings. These results are discussed in relation to effective social skills training and the integration of children with behavioral disorders.
