That children are capable of pathology not only such conditions as ADHD and learning disabilities, but also such "adult" disorders as anxiety and depression stands as a defining moment in psychology s recent history. Within this recognition is the understanding that the social skills deficits that accompany these disorders must be targeted for assessment and treatment to ensure optimal functioning in school, with peers, and in later transitions to puberty and adulthood.

A panel of leading scholars reviews current research, discusses social deficits unique to specific disorders, and identifies evidence-based best practices in one authoritative, approachable reference.
