Summary

Part of a research series on learning disabled (LD) secondary students, the document reports findings of a study to investigate the social/emotional, cognitive/academic, and coping mechanisms of adolescents in secondary schools. Ss were 234 LD, 222 low achieving (LA), and 215 normal achieving (NA) students and their parents. Two instruments, the Parent Instrument and the Regular Teacher Instrument, were used to obtain information on how students liked school, how they responded to criticism and praise, their interactions with peers and school personnel, and other social behaviors in the school and home setting. Among findings were that teachers perceived LD junior high school adolescents more positively than their LA peers on such social behaviors as pays attention, completes home assignments, and follows instructions; that parents' perceptions of their LD adolescent were similar to those of parents of LA youths; and that only junior high school teachers perceived the LD students as socially/emotionally superior to LA students and more able to cope with the demands of the classroom. Tables with statistical data relating to responses from study instruments comprise more than half of the report. (SB)
