Objective: In this study the effect of social skills education on the function of elementary school students in  Tehran was evaluated. 
Method: In a before after trial we evaluated the effect of social skill educational programs on 26 fourth grade elementary schoolchildren. Sampling was carried out using convenience sampling at the student’s schools. Two child and adolescent psychiatrists taught the skills at three levels of students, teachers and parents. After carrying out the interventions and completing the Strength and Difficulty Questionnaire (SDQ) results obtained before and after the education were compared. 
Results: There was a significant reduction in the overall scores indicating problems in general; but there were no significant changes with regard to other indicators including conduct, emotion, hyperactivity, peer relationship, and pro social behavior scores. 
Conclusion: Social skill intervention programs may be effective in the reduction of some problems among students and in enhancing their abilities.
