Abstract

The social competence intervention program (SCIP) is a multi-sensory intervention that includes a metacognitive component. The underlying assumption of the intervention is that some children suffer from perceptual and interpretive deficits as well as poor social skills. In this pilot program, we adapted exercises used in theatre classes to remediate these underlying deficits in children with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders. Anecdotal evidence from the pilot study suggests that participating children began to develop some self-awareness of their feelings and behaviors and the subsequent impact on social interaction. Future refinements based on the results of this pilot are discussed.
