Favazza, Paddy C.; Odom, Samuel L.
Exceptional Children, v63 n3 p405-18 Spr 1997
This study examined the effects of contact, books, and discussions on attitudes of kindergarten-age children (N=46) toward people with disabilities. At posttest, significant gains in acceptance were found only in a high-contact group who participated in a program designed to promote acceptance through storytime at school and home, structured play, and direct contact with individuals having disabilities.
