Interventions for Attitude Change towards People with Disabilities: How Successful Are They?
Pernice, R.; Lys, K.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v19 n2 p171-74 Jun 1996
The Department of Rehabilitation Studies at Massey University (New Zealand) incorporates attitude-changing strategies during the students' first year in the program. These strategies involve personal contact with people with disabilities, provision of accurate information about disabilities, and simulation or role playing. Students' attitudes improved over the year and were more positive than attitudes of a control group of agricultural students. (DB)
