The Social Communication Disorder Intervention Manual (SCDIM) contains goals, objectives, and interventions for writing a student’s IEP. Intervention strategies are provided for each communication skill on the scale. For pre-referral and classroom intervention, the Social Communication Disorder Intervention Manual is an excellent resource for all educators working in public and private educational settings.

This manual and the Social Communication Disorder Scale (SCDS) are based on the American Psychiatric Association (APA) definition of social (pragmatic) communication disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5™) (2013).

Social Communication Disorder is a new diagnostic category introduced in DSM-5. It is meant to apply to individuals who have deficits in the social use of language, but do not have the restricted interests or repetitive behaviour seen in autism spectrum disorders. Some children who previously would have received a diagnosis of PDD-NOS may now receive a diagnosis of Social Communication Disorder.
