Abstract

This study examined the relationship between socialization and language skills. This study then investigated how socialization and language scores predicted preschool educational placement. Results indicated that baseline and follow up socialization and language scores were correlated. Furthermore, a partial transactional relationship was found between language and socialization scores. Measures of language and socialization scores did not predict preschool educational placement, however. Outcomes of this study suggest that language and socialization abilities are interrelated, and clinicians and educators should consider the importance of the social context that is important for children to learn.
