Socio-emotional characteristics of children with intellectual disability
The first chapter describes the socio-emotional characteristics of infants and children with intellectual disabilities. First, the basic concepts and determinants of social skills are analyzed. Then, detailed research data is presented that confirms that people with intellectual disabilities have social difficulties, mainly in the spontaneous manifestation of behaviors and communication skills, emotional response and social perception, which are mainly related to the difficulty of adapting to the structures of society (Brolin & Loyd, 2004. Diamond, 2002). In addition, they show cognitive difficulties in the effective processing of social information, in active participation in social interactions and in the constructive solution of social problems (Dodge & Pettit, 2003). The chapter concludes that it is necessary to create individualized programs that will strengthen the social skills of these individuals in the context of inclusive education (Guralnick, 1995), but with the participation of teachers and parents (Matson, Mahan, & LoVullo, 2009).
