Changing Student Attitudes about Disabilities.
Trent, Linda M.
Principal, v73 n2 p32-34 Nov 1993
Troubled by students' attitudes toward disabled children, a Florida elementary school principal asked special education teachers to brainstorm some awareness activities. The resulting program, Handicapped Awareness through Stimulation (HATS), had four objectives: sensitizing students, providing interaction opportunities, developing empathy, and allowing nondisabled students to experience handicapping situations. Benefits are discussed. (MLH)
