Teachers' Perceptions on Special Education Preparation: A Descriptive Study
Rosas, Clarissa E.; Winterman, Kathleen G.
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p119-128 Fall 2010
The purpose of this study was to analyze teachers' perceptions of their ability to instruct students with disabilities. A statewide survey was administered in Ohio to pre-service and in-service teachers regarding their perceptions of their teacher preparation programs and their respective ability to instruct students with special needs. Question and statements from the survey regarding their perceptions, concerns, and beliefs on instructing students with disabilities were disaggregated. Results of the survey indicated that both pre-service and in-service teachers felt adequately prepared to teach students with special needs but ongoing professional development lacked the support teachers desired.
