She is studying self-concept and test anxiety in students with disabilities in South Australia. My findings revealed that students with disabilities obtained low scores in physical, moral, personal, family, social and academic self-concepts and high scores in test anxiety. The interviews provided insights into the reasons for low self-concept among students with disabilities and reasons for high test anxiety. My research identified those areas which served as a catalyst to increase inequalities between students with and without disabilities.
