Product Details

The SSRS has been replaced by the Social Skills Improvement System (SSIS) Rating Scales

Benefits

  • Provides a comprehensive picture of social behaviors
  • Three rating forms (teacher, parent, and student) offer flexibility
  • Helps you quickly plan appropriate interventions

Features

  • Items on each scale are rated according to perceived frequency and importance—a feature unique to the SSRS.
  • Detailed diagnostic information provides direct links to intervention.

The Social Skills Rating System allows you to obtain a more complete picture of social behaviors from teachers, parents, and even students themselves. Evaluate a broad range of socially validated behaviors-behaviors that affect teacher-student relationships, peer acceptance, academic performance, and more.

Use the SSRS to:

  • Assess children who have problems with behavior and interpersonal skills
  • Detect the problems behind shyness, trouble initiating conversation, and difficulty making friends
  • Select behaviors for treatment and assist in planning intervention

Scales

Social Skills Scale measures positive social behaviors:

  • Cooperation
  • Empathy
  • Assertion
  • Self-Control
  • Responsibility

Problem Behaviors Scale measures behaviors that can interfere with the development of positive social skills. It assesses behavior in three subscales:

  • Externalizing Problems, such as aggressive acts and poor temper control
  • Internalizing Problems, such as sadness and anxiety
  • Hyperactivity, such as fidgeting and impulsive acts

Academic Competence Scale provides a quick estimate of academic functioning. Teachers rate reading and mathematics performance, general cognitive functioning, as well as motivation and parental support.

Intervention

Helps plan intervention with AIR form

Use the Assessment-Intervention Record (AIR) to combine the perspectives of each rater on a single form. The AIR lets you quickly focus on behaviors that matter most, helping you plan appropriate intervention. The AIR provides a graphic illustration of all the information obtained from the questionnaires with a summary of intervention plans.

ASSIST™ makes reporting and intervention planning faster and easier

SSRS ASSIST for Individual Scoring and Reporting is available for both Mac and Windows. Both versions provide:

  • Quick, detailed analysis of positive and negative social behaviors
  • Multi-rater comparisons
  • Clear, actionable suggestions for effective intervention and prevention

Evaluate your social skills program

The scannable version of SSRS ASSIST provides group reporting options by groups, individuals, classrooms, grades, schools, districts, gender, ethnicity, and time. This helps you measure the effectiveness of social programs and behavior modification programs as required by IDEA regulations.

Intervention activities correlated to SSRS

SSRS ASSIST programs are correlated to the Social Skills Intervention Guide and Discover Skills for Life for planning remediation based on problems identified by the SSRS.
