Abstract


Bullying at school is an acute and psychologically painful experience; it is even more problematic for children and adolescents with learning disabilities. The main goal of this study was to examine adolescents’ self-evaluations as related to experiences of bullying at school in adolescents with and without learning disabilities (LD). 188 adolescents from 6–7th grades took part in the study. Ninety five of them had learning disability diagnosis, ninety three of them were typical achievers. Methods: Self-perception Profile for Children, YSR questions on competence and occupation; and questions on experience of bullying. The study revealed both groups had similar experience of being bullied, however adolescents with LD bullied less and had lower self-evaluations in comparison to those without LD. LD group is more vulnerable in self-evaluation aspects in relation to bullying experience.

KEY WORDS: psychology, learning disabilities, bullying, adolescence, self-evaluation.
