Personal Integration Resources of Mentally Handicapped Teenagers into Society
Konovalova, Natalia
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Partner Conference (4th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
The paper deals with the issues concerning the study of mentally handicapped teenagers' integrative potential within modernisation of contemporary Russian education. The research is concentrated on the study of personal and social determinants influencing the readiness of mentally handicapped students to be integrated into the environment. Research manipulations included the use of tests by J. Guilford and M. O'Sullivan in the adaptation of E. S. Mikhailova and "Observance card" by J. Stott in the adaptation of V. A. Murzenko with a group of around 130 teenagers with mild mental handicap. Obtained results showed that social intellect development of mentally handicapped teenagers is rather low due to biological but mainly social factors connected with unsatisfactory conditions of upbringing and educational development, lack of possibilities to satisfy personal social and emotional needs as well as non-formedness of social abilities.
