Abstract
The way children process information about social interactions plays an important role in how children feel about, understand, and behave in social situations. Social information processing skills have been associated with children's social competence. Aggressive and peer-rejected children exhibit deficits in social information processing and are more likely to show a hostile attributional bias when interpreting social situations. The purpose of this study is to explore the development of biased social information processing in early childhood by identifying early childhood precursors to later social information processing. Few studies have addressed the developmental roots of social information processing deficits in the early childhood period.
