A Study of Parental Attitudes Toward Their Handicapped Child.
Lazar, Alfred L.; And Others
Attitudes of both parents of 52 educable mentally retarded children in special education classes were examined. Results from the Attitude Toward Handicapped Individuals (ATHI) scale and the Parent Child Rating Scale (PCRS) indicated no significant differences for sex. It was found that the ATHI scale could be effectively used to group individuals on a continuum of acceptance/rejection attitude dimension toward handicapped persons. (CL)
