Priyanka Pandey*
 
ABSTRACT
The aim of the present paper is to study attachment and personality in a person with self-concept, their school adjustment and learning disability. Thereafter to compare them with normal children. The data for self-concept, school adjustment and learning disability has been collected from rehabilitation centres in Delhi and NCR. For normal population, data has been collected from different schools in Delhi and NCR. A total sample of 60 children studying in Grade 8 to 12 in different schools was selected based on their previous academic performance of the class-tests and teacher’s rating. They were further tested on Adjustment inventory for school studies developed by A.K.P. Sinha and R.P. Singh and Self concept questionnaire developed by Dr.Raj Kumar Saraswat. Children with learning disability obtained significantly low score in self-concept and adjustment when compared to normal children. The result indicates a significant relationship between self concept and adjustment. In general, the results indicated that the better adjustment people have better ability to make progress in their life. However, the differences between the groups were found to be low suggesting that suitable remedial/ intervention programmes may bring the children with difficulty at par with normal children.
