Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to compare academic competence and social adjustment of students with learning disabilities and two groups of students with behavior disorders. The sample consisted of 31 boys with learning disabilities and 52 boys with behavior disorders divided into two subgroups: (a) boys displaying hyperactive behavior (BDH) and (b) boys not demonstrating such behavior (BDNH). Significant differences were found among the three groups using the Classroom Behavior Inventory, and three measures contributed to the significant difference: Hostility versus Consideration, Extroversion versus Introversion, and Independence versus Dependence. The results highlighted teachers' needs for differential approach in their interventional planning.
