Scientific findings show that an adequate and positive development of social skills during childhood is an important base of social, occupational and personal adjustment through life-span. On the other hand, it has been stablished that unfit social skills development during childhood is associated with negative effects like aggressive and antisocial behaviors, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder as well as internalizing problems like depression, social withdrawal and anxiousness. For these reasons, the development of social skills as earlier as possible is crucial. In this paper we try to assess the effects of a program focused on social skills for boys and girls from the first, second and third years of Primary Education from Santa Cruz de la Sierra (Bolivia). The results show significant improvement of social competence and socialization among the participants.
