Resilience Revisited: Urban Children Assessment and Intervention. Construct Validity of a Resilience Profile for Students with Disabilities (Resilience Subdomains of Coping with Disability Scales--Parent Rating Scale).
Perry, Joseph D.; Bard, E. M.
The Coping with Disability Scales (CDS) (J. Perry and E. Bard, 1992) was developed to provide a social-emotional assessment specific to disabilities. This report provides a preliminary test of construct validity for a Resilience Profile from the Parent Rating Scale of the CDS through factor analysis, focusing on three subdomains: (1) Disability Problem Solving; (2) Social Skills; and (3) Competence Orientation Resiliency Factors. The sample was composed of 613 special education students with a variety of disabilities from a large urban public school district. Factor analysis results support the construct validity of the Resilience Profile from the CDS Parent Rating Scale. Revisions of the entire CDS will include the Resilience Profile. Some of the potential uses of the profile, which include the study of reasons for academic performance, are discussed. The Resilience Profile is attached. (SLD)
