Abstract:

In this study, cognitive effects relating to concealable stigma of adolescents with learning disabilities (Learning Disabilities, LD) were examined under the condition in which learning-related information was concealed. A total of 158 adolescents (78 LD adolescents, 80 NLD adolescents) participated in the present study. Results showed that: (1) the LD group in the concealed condition exhibited a higher level of suppressing learning-relevant thoughts than did those in the disclosed condition; (2) LD children in both conditions showed increasing accessibility of learning-relevant thoughts than did the NLD (Non-Learning Disabilities) group during the interview.
