Critique of an Intervention Programme to Promote Resilience among Learners with Specific Learning Difficulties
Theron, Linda
South African Journal of Education, v26 n2 p199-214 2006
A quasi-experimental study, which focused on inculcating resilience skills in adolescents with specific learning difficulties by means of a group intervention programme, is reported on. The results of the study suggested that adolescents with specific learning difficulties can acquire resilience skills despite obstacle-ridden circumstances, but that the programme requires continued research to be optimally effective.
