This chapter will examine the potential impact of internalizing and externalizing disorders on children’s social play. We will contend that the available findings provide preliminary evidence that childhood disorders can have pernicious implications for social play. We will then move on to generate hypotheses regarding the mediating role of disruptions in areas of core competency, including emotion regulation and social cognition. In addition, we will highlight concerns related to the peer relationships that serve as a critical context for social play. Our overall objective will be to identify possible intervening mechanisms as a heuristic for future inquiry.

Keywords: Keywords; Social play; internalizing disorders; externalizing disorders; emotion regulation; social cognition.
