The article outlines the actual issue of development and approbation of the Ukrainian diagnostic visual measures examining social intelligence in pre-schoolers having intellectual difficulties of a mild degree and in pre-schoolers having normative development. Currently, special psychology needs tools examining socio-personal and emotional development of children with mild intellectual disabilities from the standpoint of the inter-subjectivity principle. The article substantiates the emotional peculiarities in socially deprived pre-schoolers with such disabilities. The psychological diagnostic toolkit developed by the article authors is aimed at researching the intersubjective and intrasubjective bases of emotion recognition in the structure of emotional intelligence, which is considered as a component of a broader category - social intelligence. The article presents the examining measure, consisting of portrait pictures depicting certain social situations with corresponding emotions: 1) joy; 2) anger; 3) sadness; 4) fear; 5) surprise; 6) calmness (separate sets for boys and girls); 12 story pictures in which some characters express a certain emotional state (1 picture for each of the above emotional states); and 12 stories for the story pictures. The specifics of emotion recognition by pre-schoolers with mild intellectual disabilities and by children with normal, typical development were determined. Basing on performed theoretical justification, the prospects of further scientific studies will include the theoretical substantiation and development of diagnostic visual measures studying the moral-behavioural component of social intelligence in pre-schoolers with normative typical development and pre-schoolers with mild intellectual disabilities.
