The Measurement of Attitudes Toward Disabled Persons.
Yuker, Harold E.; And Others
The monograph provides a comprehensive report on recent research related to the measurement of attitudes toward the disabled. A review of the literature traces the development of instruments to measure the attitudes of both disabled and non-disabled persons. The Attitude Toward Disabled Persons (ATDP) scale is discussed, including instructions for administration, scoring, and interpretation. The remaining chapters include many studies which provide validating data. These chapters cover the demographic correlates of attitudes toward disabled persons, including age, sex, nationality, race, and marital status, and also the personality, attitudinal, experiential, and behavioral correlates of attitudes toward disabled persons. Each chapter has a summary and conclusions drawn from the research reported, in addition to a final presentation of the major implications resulting from research with the ATDP. (KW)
