Assessments of Rural Elementary Students' Attitudes toward the Handicapped.
Miller, Maurice; Loukellis, Irene
A revised form of the Scale of Children's Attitudes Toward Handicaps (SCATE), which provides a breakdown of attitudes toward specific disabilities, was administered to 332 children in grades 2 through 6. The SCATE was shown to be reliable. The ranking of most positive attitudes to least was: nonhandicapped, learning disabled, hearing impaired, visually impaired, physically handicapped, and mentally retarded. Differences in rankings across grades were significant only for the visually impaired and learning disability categories, with fourth grade lowest for each. Other results included that females scored significantly more positively for all categories except learning disabilities. (The scale is appended.) (CL)
