Students with learning disabilities : academic and psychosocial aspects of adaptation

  • This study explores learning-disabled students' academic and psychosocial adjustment as compared to their non-disabled classmates within the mainstream public education system in Greece. A brief description of the special education services in Greece is also presented. The sample of the study consisted of fifth and sixth grade elementary school students in northern Greece. The learning-disabled students were identified based on teachers' evaluation (N=30). The control group consisted of all classmates of these students (N=307). Teacher-, peer and self-ratings were used and achievement data were obtained. The learning-disabled students were found to exhibit various academic and psychosocial difficulties based on the perceptions of all raters. Implications of the findings are discussed.
