AL Zyoudi, Mohammed
International Journal of Special Education, v25 n2 p72-77 2010
This study examined differences in self-concept among Jordanian students with and without learning disabilities. The sample of this study consisted of (124), (50) students with learning disabilities and (74) of their peers without learning disabilities. To achieve the objective of this study, the Jordanian adaptation of the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale (PHCSCS) was used. Differences were found between the groups on the intellectual and school status and behavior subscales, students without learning disability scoring higher on both scales. There was also a significant difference between boys and girls. The directions for future research are provided. (Contains 3 tables.)
