Critique of an intervention programme to promote resilience among learners with specific learning difficulties

  • Linda Theron North-West University, RSA

Abstract

A quasi-experimental study, which focused on inculcating resilience skills in adolescents with specific learning difficulties by means of a group intervention programme, is reported on. The results of the study suggested that adolescents with specific learning difficulties can acquire resilience skills despite obstacle-ridden circumstances, but that the programme requires continued research to be optimally effective.
