Promoting Social Behavior of Young Children in Group Settings: A Summary of Research (TACSEI)


This document is part of the Roadmap to Effective Intervention Practices series of syntheses, intended to provide summaries of existing evidence related to assessment and intervention for social-emotional challenges of young children. The purpose of the syntheses is to offer consumers (professionals, other practitioners, administrators, families, etc.) practical information in a useful, concise format and to provide references to more complete descriptions of validated assessment and intervention practices.

The practices described in the synthesis include those that are explicitly designed to increase the frequency or improve the quality of prosocial interactions, as well as those intended to improve emotional responding and reduce inappropriate and challenging behaviors.
