Abstract


Abstract

This study describes the interpersonal intelligence of students with disabilities and their impact on social interaction.This study was qualitative by using a structured interview method for six disabled students at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). In particular, the findings show that interpersonal intelligence affects the social interaction of disabled students, especially from disabled students with peers. In addition, students with disabilities were also found to have problems with limited mobility problems as well as unsatisfactory facilities or facilities in the university which made their movements difficult. Students with disabilities also reported that they relied heavily on close friends to help them attend and attend college at UUM. Most students with disabilities have good social interactions with peers, although they have disabilities that affect their quality of life especially physically and visually impaired students. The study also suggested that facilities for disabled students in UUM be upgraded to enable disabled persons to be self-reliant in UUM. This can improve the social function of disabled students and also develop the potential of the disabled person to the maximum level.
