Journal of Early Intervention, v20 n3 p189-203 Sum 1996
A study assessed the attitudes of 52 general early childhood teachers serving young children with disabilities in inclusive early childhood settings. Findings indicated teachers' comfort levels decreased as the severity of the child's disability increased and were lowest when the child had severe disabilities in leg functioning, muscle tone, and appropriate behavior.
