Young Adult, Optimism, Physically Challenged


The researchers utilized a non-experimental descriptive design in describing the level of optimism of physically challenged young adults residing in Metro Manila and Region IV-A (Calabarzon). Non-probability snowball sampling was used. The researchers adapted and modified a survey tool from the questionnaire made by Carver et al. (1994) entitled Life Orientation Test. Data was analysed using frequency distribution, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test, and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Majority of the respondents were male, single, receiving an income of 10,000 pesos and below, high school graduate, Catholic, supported by their parents and have been an amputee for more than one year. The physically challenged young adults have a high level of optimism. There was no significant difference in the level of optimism of physically challenged young adults in Metro Manila and Calabarzon when grouped according to gender, civil status, monthly family income, educational attainment, religion, primary provider of support, and length of being an amputee.
