Children with disabilities
Children with special needs too can develop emotional intelligence to be emotionally aware, insightful regarding understanding other’s emotions, more able to cope with emotional dilemmas in life, to be empathetic towards peers and to develop effective inter and intra personal skills.
The results suggest that EI may play a protective role in the association between background variables and college attainment in students with SLD (Specific Learning Disabilities). The results may provide a basis for interventions to empower students with SLD (Specific Learning Disabilities) in academia.
Conclusions: EI may be a unique area of interest for clinical populations and an important consideration in the development and implementation of interventions to capitalize upon inherent strengths. Implications of these results for intervention are discussed.
