SELF-ESTEEM AND HEARING IMPAIRMENT: AN INVESTIGATION OF HONG KONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
Abstract:A comparison was made of the self-esteem of 45 moderately-severe hearing impaired and 300 normal-hearing secondary school students in Hong Kong. Analysis indicated that the hearing impaired group, particularly the males, tended to report higher self-esteem in a number of dimensions of the self. The results provide no evidence that integration into the normal classroom has damaged the self-esteem of the hearing-impaired.
