The purpose of this article is to address isues related to the application of social skills training in schools. Many educators' views toward social behavior impede generalization, and cognitive strategies are proffered as tactics for remediating this problem. Training delivery issues invovle the importance of developing a conceptual model, utilizing functional assessment data, and programming for generalization.
