abstract

  • Researchers.have attempted to increase the social skills in young children identified as social isolates. However, a classification system that accurately describes these youngsters has yet to be developed. The authors propose that through the use of the sociometric peer nomination technique socially isolated children can be separated into two classification groups: the socially ignored and the socially rejected. Separating these youngsters into two groups will help researchers obtain more information about the behaviour of these youngsters and will facilitate intervention strategies specifically designed for each population. © 1984, Sage Publications.
