Abstract

This study was an attempt to compare self-concept and adjustment state of mentally retarded girls who were attending the special school (with intervention program), who are not attending the special school (without intervention program) and normal healthy girls attending regular school. The investigator hypothesized that the mentally retarded girls with an intervention program would differ socially and emotionally from the mentally retarded girls without an intervention program. For the nature of the design of the study, participants for this study were divided into three groups. With the help of purposive sampling (non-probability method), the participant girls were selected in such a manner that ten girls in each group were matched in age and severity with girls in each of the three groups. For the purpose of data collection, Piers Harris Children’s Self Concept Scale and The AML Rating Scale were used by the investigators. The findings of the study thus did confirm on the whole the assumption that mentally retarded girls with an intervention program would differ emotionally and socially from mentally retarded girls without intervention program.
