Attitude Influence and Attitude Formation of Non-Handicapped Elementary School Students as Related to the Mainstreaming of Emotionally Disturbed Students.
Dubin, Martin S.; Fisher, Maurice D.
The study examined the effects of training 209 regular class elementary school students and their 12 emotionally disturbed classmates about handicapping conditions. Investigated were normal students' attitudes toward emotionally disturbed students, and the self esteem of emotionally disturbed students. Data gathered prior to and at the conclusion of the training program were obtained in classes containing mainstreamed emotionally disturbed students. Classes were randomly divided into a treatment and control group. Statistical analysis of questionnaire results using the analysis of covariance indicated that elementary students within the treatment group showed increased positive attitudes toward the handicapped and increased acceptance of mainstreamed emotionally disturbed students.
