Thirty psychoneurologically learning disabled children and 30 “normal” school children are compared on measures of total, covert and overt anxiety, as well as Personal, Home, Social and Formal adjustment. The subjects ranged from 14 to 18 years. Anxiety was measured by the I P A T Anxiety Scale and adjustment by the P H S F Relations Questionnaire. Nine hypotheses were tested using a one-way multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and Wilk’s Criterium (lambda) followed by a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) of scores on the subscales. Statistically significant differences were found on total, covert and overt anxiety and total, Social and Formal relationships between the normal and SLD groups.
