Abstract or Summary
  • The majority of self-concept and sociometric research on crippled children has been comparative studies in which the disabled child has been a minority member within a group of physically normal children. This study takes a different avenue in that it investigated the self-concept and peer reputation of physically handicapped children when they are integrated with similarly handicapped peers. Self-concept was defined as an individual's perceptions, beliefs, and feelings about himself, resulting from social and environmental experiences. It is generally believed that body-image is an important component of self-concept and that a crippling condition may cause peer group rejection. The hypotheses for this study were formulated in terms of these theoretical implications. The peer reputation scores are regarded as a criterion measure of adjustment. To add further dimension, an attempt was also made in this study to investigate the effect of a physical disability on specific areas of restriction such as inability to speak or walk. Subjects for the study were 28 moderately to severely handicapped children ranging in age from 10 to 16 and who were enrolled in special classes for the physically handicapped. Their disabilities were neuro-motor in nature. Data were gathered by the use of three rating scales which could be used without special adaptation by these subjects, who had extreme difficulty in writing and speaking. The self-concept scale was that devised by Lipsett (1958), the Peer Nomination Inventory Scale was that constructed by Wiggins and Winder (1961) and the Physical Rating Scale was formulated by the author to measure the degree of disability. Physical ratings were made by the teachers and physical therapists.
