Summary or Abstract : This study examined the experiences of early adolescents with learning disabilities, specifically related to the impact of a learning disability on their developing sense of identity. Using the social model of disability and ecological theory as frameworks, 12 students participated in interviews. Data were analyzed using modified grounded theory methodology. The interviews captured the way in which early adolescents with learning disabilities talk about learning disabilities and the meaning and relevance of this label to the way they experience and describe who they are. A model describing identity formation in early adolescents with learning disabilities arose from the analysis. From four categories (1) 'problems', (2) 'strengths', (3) 'stigma' and (4) 'dealing', there emerged an over-arching core category named 'dis-association'. Dis-association includes themes of associating and distancing, understanding academic difficulties, recognizing strengths, getting help, and dealing with the omnipresent stigma that is associated with this label. The process of dis-association reflects assertion of agency on the part of the study participants and resistance to reject the negatively-loaded learning disability label, while accepting support and accommodations to address learning problems. The study's findings have implications for counseling early adolescents with learning disabilities, as well as for increasing public awareness about learning disabilities and challenging negative attitudes toward the learning disability label..
