The sample of the study consisted of (120) students with visual impairment encolled in public school. The measure of emotional intelligence was developed, consisting of four sub-dimensions covering 30 paragraphs. The empathy scale was developed from (22) paragraphs in its final form, and the measured self-efficacy measure was (36). This was followed by the application of the scale on the sample of the study and the results were analyzed. The results of the study revealed a moderate level of empathy among students with visual impairments. The average score was (2.91). The results also revealed a high level of perceived self-efficacy. The average of the total score was (3.13), and a high level of intelligence (3.18).

The overall correlation coefficient between empiric and self-efficacy measures was (0.592), which means that (59.2%) of the variation in emotional intelligence is explained by the measure of empathy and perceived self-efficacy.
