According to the National Disabled People Data Base within Ministry of Family and Social Policies (Özveri), there are 1.559.222 disabled people in Turkey. If this rate would be linked to the families of the disabled people, the number of people who spend time with disabled individuals would increase to 10 million. This number corresponds to 12.5% of the country's population. This requires sensitiveness from each individual because everyone is either a disabled person, related to a disabled person or a potential disabled person. In this case, the importance of information related to disabled people, acquired by the students in the highest institutions of the education system increases due to the fact that they are future teachers and potential managers. This research was conducted in Abant Izzet Baysal University, School of Physical Education and Sport in order to analyze and understand the effects of disability training on the students. Designed as an activity research, this study took 36 h for 12 weeks. The research was conducted with 15 voluntary students who took Physical Education and Sport for Disabled People and Sport for Disabled People classes. The data were gathered through focus group discussion and field notes. In the analysis of the data, both descriptive and content analyses were used. All of the operations were done by NVIVO 10 qualitative analysis program. Results showed that the students reached almost all phases of the cognitive domain outcomes by acquiring a level of information more advanced than the level they had at the beginning. Furthermore, especially the outcomes at the affective domain revealed that the students became more equipped in this respect.
