The Effect of Special Education on Self-Perception on Gifted Children

Ahmet Bildiren

Abstract


This research was planned to investigate the effect of special education on self-perception of gifted children. The sample of the study consisted of 26 gifted children who were educated in İzmir Sıdıka Akdemir Science and Art Center 26 and who were identificated but did not start special education. Of the gifted children, 30 are female students and 22 are male students.The Piers Harris Self-Concept Scale was used to investigate self-perception. The relationship between the self-perception of the gifted children and their special education status was analyzed with the Mann-Whitney U-Test. As a result of the research, the Piers Harris Self-Concept Scale scores of gifted children who did not receive special education were significantly higher than the scores of the gifted children with special education (p <0,05).
