Self-Concept in Children with Learning Disabilities: The Relationship between Global Self-Concept, Academic "Discounting," Nonacademic Self-Concept, and Perceived Social Support.
Kloomok, Shauna; Cosden, Merith
Learning Disability Quarterly, v17 n2 p140-53 Spr 1994
This study of 72 elementary children with learning disabilities explored how children maintain a positive self-concept despite academic difficulties. Children with high global self-concept, compared to low global self-concept, perceived themselves as more intelligent, more competent in nonacademic domains, and receiving more social support. Subjects did not discount the importance of academics. (Author/JDD)
