Coping Strategies of High School Students with Learning Disabilities: A Longitudinal Qualitative Study and Grounded Theory
The purpose of the study was to identify the core coping strategies of students with learning disabilities. The authors interviewed 20 Israeli high school students with learning disabilities over a three-year period. Four emotional-cognitive strategies were identified: 'Avoidance,' 'Rebellion,' 'Reconciliation,' and 'Determination.' The results provide a map within which school counselors and teachers may place their students' current functioning, and help students progress toward coping strategies effective for attaining emotional and academic success.
