Teacher and Pupil Disability Attitude Congruency.
Harasymiw, Stefan J.; And Others
Evaluated were the attitudes of a total of 1,678 grade school teachers, college students, high school students, and grade school students toward 20 disability group labels. Ss were administered either the General Social Distance Scale or the Perception of Social Closeness Scale. Results indicated that disabilities were accepted in the following preference order: physical, sensory, psychogenic, and social. Results were consistent transcending time (over a 7-year period), age, and particular measuring scales. Findings suggested the need for study of the effects of teacher and student attitudes toward the integrated handicapped pupil. (DB)
