This study was aimed at expanding the repertoire of social skills (SS) using ludic tasks. 163 students - aged 7 to 10 years old - from two private schools took part in this study. Interviews were made in which educational agents and parents reported occurrence of non-socially skilled behavior. Direct observation was used for measurement and comparison of behaviors during baseline (BL) and intervention. The data from BL vary between 55% and 70% of non-skilled behavior. The intervention consisted of SS Training, using discussion with the participants of movie scenes, besides training of rule-following and workshops for the development of SS. The results show increased emission of socially skilled behaviors (75%) and reduction of non-skilled behavior (25%). It is concluded that the intervention program was successful.
