Abstract

The present study aimed to explore the relationship of self-perception, social connectedness and consideration of future consequences in adolescents with hearing impairment. Correlational research design was used for the current study. The sample consisted of 100 adolescents with hearing impairment, 63 female and 37 male students. It was hypothesized that there is a positive relationship between self-perception and social connectedness and self-perception importance is likely to predicted future consequences in adolescents with hearing impairment. Richards PSC Scale (Richards, 1987) was used to measure self-perception while Social Connectedness Scale-Revise (Richard, 2008) and Consideration of Future Consequences scale (Strathman, Gleicher, Boninger & Edwards 1994) were used to measure social connectedness and consideration for future consequences. The result revealed that self-perception importance positively predicted future consequences and negatively predicted immediate consequences. Problems present in the parents and number of siblings were positive predictors of future consequences.

Keywords: Self-perception, social connectedness, consideration of future consequences, hearing impairment.
