Preschoolers' Evaluations of Physical Disabilities: A Consideration of Attitudes and Behavior.
Cohen, Robert; And Others
Journal of Pediatric Psychology, v19 n1 p103-111 Feb 1994
Used a standard picture-ranking task to assess preschooler's attitudes about orthopedically handicapped individuals. Found that children as young as preschool age can hold a functionally related preference for a normal over a physically handicapped person. Children who held this preference interacted differently in social situations than children who did not. (AA)
