The Social Profile is designed to assess whether groups and individuals interact appropriately for their developmental stage and the activity in which they are engaged. This new instrument allows therapists, group leaders, and teachers with training in behavior observation to assess specific behaviors across five levels of participation and cooperation. It includes both a children’s and an adult/adolescent version.
Administration and Scoring
Results give both a general overview and detailed measurement of social cooperative behaviors. Scores are graphed, averaged, and interpreted by developmental categories. The Manual includes 14 case studies that illustrate the use of the Social Profile. Downloadable and writable versions of both the children’s and the adult/adolescent versions are contained on a flash drive, along with a group-participation observation sheet.
