Sex Differences in Attitudes of Young Male and Female Gifted Youngsters Toward Handicapped Individuals.
Lazar, Alfred L.; And Others
Fifteen males and 15 females (ages 8.0 to 8.8) who had been identified as gifted were studied to compare their attitudes toward handicapped individuals as measured by the Attitude Toward Disabled Persons Scale (ATDP). Form O of the ATDP Scale was used and a one-way analysis of variance showed a significant difference between males and females, supporting other studies which have found females to be more positive. The adequacy and promise of the ATDP are considered. (RJ)
