Abstract

This study examined the susceptibility to problems with peer relationships and being bullied in a UK sample of 12-year-old children with a history of specific speech and language difficulties. Data were derived from the children's self-reports and the reports of parents and teachers using measures of victimisation, emotional and behavioural difficulties, prosocial development and self-esteem, together with measures of the children's language development. Similar prevalence rates for victimisation were found compared with matched groups of typically developing children and children with special educational needs related to general learning difficulties. The importance of prosocial skills and their relationship with language development, particularly pragmatic impairment, are explored.
