This study aimed to investigate whether there were differences in self-concept among adolescents with low vision due to gender. The sample population consisted of (23) adolescents, 12 (10 males and 13 females) aged 12-17 years in the first year of secondary school. The researcher used the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS) for the evaluation of Self-Concept. The results of this study showed that there were some differences in the adolescents' self-concept and self-behavior due to gender. Female students scored lower on social self-concept, family self-behavior, and moral self-behavior dimensions than male students, but higher on physical self-concept.
