Attitude Change Toward Trainable Mentally Retarded: "Mainstreaming in Reverse."
Cronk, Mildred S.
The effect of special instruction and an integrated program on attitudes toward trainable mentally retarded (TMR) students was assessed with 42 adults (PTA board members and teachers) and 127 elementary children. Regular class students in small groups from first, third, and sixth grades were systematically integrated into a TMR class where they engaged in the same cognitive, motoric, and affective domain activities as the TMR, for the development of personal, social, and occupational skills. Significant changes between groups was shown by first and third grades. The most significant change occurred with the experimental adult group who attended a slide-talk presentation and visited a TMR classroom. (Author/SBH)
