This packet includes an checklist to informally assess social skills. The target of this checklist is to determine how a child interacts with their peers, adult communication partners, and how emotions are handled and understood. This is a great checklist for screening a student’s functional social skills as well as for comparative assessment among various settings. You can use this checklist as an observational form or your can have parents fill out the skills they do and do not observe at home.
The checklist has three assessment columns, one for baseline data and the following two columns for re-assessment data. Therefore, this checklist can be used several times to assess and reassess a student’s skills.
The social skills data collection form, is very similar to this checklist as it targets the same social skills however, this form allows one to make comments and keep additional data on various skills. This sheet can be used for one data collection period and is perfect for in-class observation and data collection of current functional social skills.
