Luftig, Richard L. – 1985
Evidence suggests that a significant proportion of school children consider themselves lonely and isolated from peers.

The paper analyzes research on the self concept of differentially placed educable mentally retarded (EMR) students and hypothesizes covarying factors which may suggest to educators variables to be taken into account in placement decisions. Considered are such factors as IQ, reading achievement, and being the only retarded child mainstreamed into a…

Perceived school loneliness and isolation of 73 partially mainstreamed retarded students (mean age 13.5 years) and their nonretarded peers was assessed using a five-point Likert-type loneliness scale. Retarded students reported significantly more loneliness and isolation than nonretarded peers suggesting that mainstreaming by itself does not…

Describes a paired-associate learning experiment in which American Sign Language signs of high and low translucency and high and low cheremic similarity were presented to sign-naive subjects. One hypothesis, that translucency would facilitate learning, was confirmed; a second, that cheremic similarity would retard sign learning, was not.…

Effects of high and low levels of manual sign translucency and referential concreteness on the manual sign learning of 40 moderately/severely mentally retarded adolescents were investigated. High levels of translucency were a significant facilitator while low levels inhibited learning. Concreteness did not significantly affect sign learning.…

Luftig, Richard L. – American Journal of Mental Deficiency, 1983
A study involving 216 retarded and nonretarded 12- to 14-year-olds supported the hypothesis that viewing a peer labeled as retarded or nonretarded affects estimates of one's own recall. Subjects viewing a "retarded" actor estimated their own recall would be higher than subjects viewing the actor as a fast learner. (CL)

Categorizes results of various studies on the effects of educational placement on measured self-concept functioning of retarded pupils. Suggests that IQ, reading ability, and the ability to make social comparisons may be valuable predictors of self-concept functioning of retarded students in various educational settings. Recommends criteria for…
