Social Experience and the Development of Social Cognition in Orthopedically Disabled and Non Disabled Children.
Volpe, Richard
Evaluated were the cognitive and social development of 40 orthopedially handicapped children ages 6 to 12 years. Social development was measured by the Children's Social Relations Rating Scale, the Children's Social Relations Interview Schedule, and the Children's Role Taking Task. The Concrete Operations Tasks assessed cognitive ability. Data supported the hypotheses that Ss would enact the patient (dependent) role and the nondisabled control group woull enact the agent (independent) role. Only partial support was demonstrated for the hypothesis that the Ss' cognitive task scores would be significantly lower than the control group's scores. Analysis of the level of role taking indicated that the social restriction produced by an orthopedic handicap decreased with age. (CL)
