Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn practical and relevant research regarding social–emotional risk for elementary-aged students.
  2. learn about how a person-centered approach to social–emotional risk may advance research.
  3. consider implications regarding varying teacher and peer ratings of students.


Students who demonstrate early indicators of social and emotional maladjustment are a concern for practitioners as they often struggle with academic achievement. The present paper will examine latent profiles of early elementary students who are at risk for social and emotional problems. The analysis examines a combination of teacher- and peer-rated social and emotional behaviors. Differences in profile membership on peer- and teacher-rated social, emotional, and academic outcomes will be explored.
