Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child employs a four-part training approach – modeling, role-playing, performance feedback, and generalization – to teach essential prosocial skills to elementary school students.

This book provides a complete description of the Skillstreaming program, with instructions for teaching 60 prosocial skills.

    Chapters on effective Skillstreaming arrangements, Skillstreaming teaching procedures, refining skill use, teaching for skill generalization, managing behavior problems, Skillstreaming in the school context, and more.
