Self-esteem is a major determinant of behaviour and it refers to the evaluation which a person makes. Self-esteem reflects a persons overall subjective emotional evaluation of his/her own worth. It is a judgement of oneself as well as an attitude towards self. The idea of self starts growing from the period of infancy and keeps on growing till and through adolescence and maturity. Adolescence being the critical period of development highlights a strong relationship between self-esteem and feeling of disablement which interactively produce significant effects on the personal and social adjustment and academic achievement for blind adolescents.
