Regular-Class Students' Attitudes toward Integrated Multiply Handicapped Peers.
Towfighy-Hooshyar, Nahid; Zingle, Harvey W.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n6 p630-37 May 1984
Regular-class elementary students (N=240) were questioned about their attitudes toward integrated multiply handicapped children. Factor analysis of the attitudes questionnaire revealed four dimensions of attitudes: causal-contact, contact-desire, deviance-tolerance, and peer acceptance. The effects of sex, grade (or age), and integrated school experience on these dimensions were analyzed. (Author/CL)
