Self-Concept and Family Relations in Physically Handicapped Adolescents in British Day and Residential Special Schools.
Bishop, Elizabeth S.
A number of social, home adjustment, and self concept measures were administered to 200 physically handicapped adolescents in British special schools. No significant differences were found in terms of self concept, family relations, social adjustment, or attitudes toward the disabled between the 100 dayschool Ss and the 100 residential school Ss. Likewise, no differences were seen when comparisons were made between those with acquired and congential handicaps or those with more or less severe handicaps. Males did have more positive self concepts than females. (Author/SBH)
