Abstract: Children with specific language impairment (SLI) often encounter social difficulties. This paper provides an overview of recent studies on the social skills of children with SLI followed by a detailed look at six children with SLI. The data reviewed include teacher ratings of social skills and child self-perceptions of loneliness and quantity of peer contacts. These children also participated in a series of interactional tasks including access, negotiation, and cooperative work. For each child, we consider the implications for language intervention goals and practices.
