SANCHEZ-ROMERO, Elisa Isabel; VILCHEZ, María del Pilar; INIESTA-SEPULVEDA, Marina  and  FRANCISCO, Cristina de. Moral development through a sports and values program in adult students with intellectual disabilities. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.37, n.1, pp.61-68.  Epub June 21, 2021. ISSN 1695-2294.

The aim of this study was to increase moral development of the students with intellectual disabilities, through an intervention with values learning and adapted sports. The program was developed in a training course for Social and Labor insertion of People with Intellectual Disability. The sample consisted of 37 students of three consecutive promotions (n1 = 11; n2 = 12; n3 = 14), aged from 19 to 37 years (M = 24.49 ± 4.22). Instrument used was the Spanish version of the Moral Competence Test adapted to intellectual disability (MCT) which measures the two components of moral development through two scores: moral competence and moral orientations/preferences. A quasi-experimental recurrent institutional cycle cohort design was planned. This design involved three cohorts, evaluated in three consecutive years. In addition, to ensure the equivalence of the groups, a study was carried out on the influence of sociodemographic and clinical variables in the change of students' moral competence, through a prospective ex post facto single group design. The results showed an improvement in two components of moral development, with statistically significant differences in stage 4 of moral orientations/preferences.
