The present study was designed to investigate Anxiety, Anger and Shyness in children with orthopedic impairment. It was hypothesized that anxiety, anger and shyness is more in children with orthopedic impairment as compared to their healthy matched siblings. The sample (N=40) of the study consisted of 20 orthopedic impaired children and 20 matched siblings. Data was collected from two schools; Pakistan Society for Rehabilitation of Disabled and Special Education School of Lahore. Spielberger State Trait Anxiety Inventory (1983), Spielberger State Trait Anger Expression Inventory II (1988) and Cheek and Melichor Shyness Scale (1985) were used to measure study variables. Independent sample t–test and Pearson Product Moment Correlation were used for the purpose of analyzing data. The findings suggested that there are significant differences in anxiety and anger in children with orthopedic impairment as compared to their healthy matched siblings, while no significant difference in shyness in children with orthopedic impairment as compared to their healthy matched siblings was found. The findings further suggest that there is positive correlation between anxiety, anger and shyness. Implications for the implementation of psychological interventions along with limitations and suggestions are discussed.
