Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe and compare the social skills, behavioral problems, and academic competence of students with High Abilities/Giftedness (HA/G): 1) according to their own account, before and after a program on social skills; and 2) according to the report of their parents/guardians and teachers, before and after guidance on HA/G and social skills. The participants were nine children from a public school, nine parents/guardians and eight teachers. The participants answered the Social Skills Rating System Questionnaire (SSRS) version for parents, teachers and students. The intervention with the students occurred in eight weekly meetings and the parents/guardians and teachers, in three fortnightly meetings. The results showed that the students’ social repertoire improved from their point of view, and their teachers and parents, probably due to the intervention procedure used, involving more than one segment.
