Examined differences in level of self-reported self-esteem and depression between learning-disabled (LD) and behavior-disordered (BD) middle school students (N=61). Results indicate that BD students reported unrealistically high self-esteem, whereas LD students reported significantly lower self-esteem than did the BD students. Both groups reported mild depression. (RJM)
