Changes in Domain Specific Self-Perception amongst Young People with Intellectual Disability: A Longitudinal Study
O'Byrne, Clara; Muldoon, Orla T.
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v33 n1 p59-72 2018
This study examines the changes that occur in multidimensional self-concept of adolescents with a diagnosis of intellectual disabilities, across gender and category of intellectual disability (borderline, mild, moderate) groups. A sample of 54 young people completed the Harter Self-Perception Profile. Using a three-wave longitudinal study conducted during their first year in a segregated special second-level school, stability and change in multiple domains of self-perception were examined. Findings indicate that gender and level of cognitive function are important variables in changes in self-perception across time, highlighting the heterogeneous nature of the special school population.
