Family Interaction as a Differential Dimension in a Scheme for the Psychological Evaluation of Handicapped children

Auther : F.Abdul-Rahim

Iscoe and Payne(1972) suggest that children may differ from what is considered normal along several basic dimensions: physical, adjustment and educational status. Each of these dimensions is further divided into three sub-components that allow for measurement. The adjustment components include: peer acceptance, family interaction, and self-esteem. The present study can be viewed as an empirical verification of family interaction as a differential dimension between normal and handicapped children. The Family .The Family Environment Scale was applied on a group of 60 families of handicapped children. The results were statistically compared with the normative group of the scale which include 110 families of normal children. The results of study show statistically significant differences in family interaction between normal and handicapped individuals in cohesion and expressiveness in family relations. In personal development within the family, differences are found between the two groups in : independence, active recreational orientation, and moral-religious emphasis. Also there are statistically significant differences between the two groups of families in the degree of control exercised on the part of handicapped children. One can conclude from the previous results that family interaction is a differential dimension between non-handicapped and handicapped children. Therefore, family interaction should be given consideration in any program for the psychological evaluation of handicapped persons.
