Positive self-concept has been identified as the means of facilitating desirable outcomes for all individuals. However, a growing body of research substantiates that adolescents are inclined to the development of a negative self-concept and adolescence is described as a phase of turbulence at its peak. When this convoluted stage is combined with a disability, the child is in a state of complete impediment and likely to develop a very poor self-concept. In the light of this, this review selects a type of disability, ‘vision impairment’ and extensively critiques the self-concept research studies in participants with vision impairment to date.
