This study examined social, behavioral, and executive function characteristics in a group of children referred for auditory and language processing assessment. Teacher ratings of executive functions were compared to parent ratings to determine if teachers’ or parents’ ratings are better predictors of social skill deficits or problem behaviors. Further, eight executive function skills were examined to determine which are most related to social skills and which are most related to problem behaviors.
