Self-Perceptions and Social Comparisons among Children with LD.
Smith, Deborah Stiehr; Nagle, Richard J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n6 p364-71 Jun-Jul 1995
This study of third-grade and fourth-grade children with (n=59) and without (n=57) learning disabilities found that LD students perceived themselves as less competent in the areas of intelligence, academic skills, behavior, and social acceptance. Contrary to expectations, subjects' self-perceptions were not affected by the choice of LD or general education peers as a reference group. (Author/DB)
