Description of Teaching Social Skills Chapter 3 - Theoretical Perspectives on the Early Years of Social Development

This chapter provides definitions of social skills that can be applied to practice by teachers, parents, and other professionals. The author underscores the importance of understanding the typical social development process for young children who are sighted as well as for those who are visually impaired. Three perspectives for defining social skills are defined--the trait or maturational model, the molecular or component model, and the process or systems model--and examples are given to illustrate how each perspective can be applied in evaluating the needs of students who are blind or visually impaired in the area of social skills.
