Social skill deficits have been associated with not only social problems, but also academic underachievement and further mental health problems. This study investigated whether social skills training using the Skillstreaming curriculum was associated with generalization of the instructed skills in other environments in the same school. In addition, the study evaluated whether reductions in office discipline referrals (ODRs), and increases in prosocial skills were observed on program-specific (e.g., Skillstreaming) and the Social, Academic, and Emotional Behavior Screening Scale (SAEBRS). This study was developed to be part of the school’s multi-tier system of support (MTSS) for students with academic and behavior difficulties. An MTSS includes increasingly intensive instruction and intervention for students whose universal screening data indicate a need for assistance in order to meet school district or state learning goals.
