Description of Self-concept, Adjustment to Blindness, and Quality of Friendship Among Adolescents with Visual Impairments
The self-concept and quality of friendship of 40 adolescents with visual impairments (20 in public schools and 20 in a residential school) were compared to those of 41 sighted adolescents. The findings indicate a similar self-concept profile for sighted adolescents and adolescents with visual impairments, although the scores of the participants with visual impairments were higher in all domains except their fathers' concept of them. The implications of these findings are discussed.
