Exploring the Self-concept of Adults with Mild Learning Disabilities
Pestana, Claudio
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v43 n1 p16-23 Mar 2015
This qualitative study aimed to add to the research on the self-concept of adults with mild learning disabilities and to generate a deeper understanding of their self-perceptions rather than draw generalised quantitative conclusions. Eight adults diagnosed with mild learning disabilities receiving support from a supported living project were interviewed individually using a semi-structured interview. The interviews were recorded and transcribed verbatim. The data collected were qualitatively analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. The findings revealed that the participants described themselves with mostly positive and some negative attributes in the different self-concept domains.
