Attitudes towards Disability: Teacher Education for Inclusive Environments in an Australian University.
Tait, Kathleen; Purdie, Nola
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v47 n1 p25-38 Mar 2000
The Interaction with Disabled Persons Scale explored attitudes of 1,346 Australian preservice teachers to people with disabilities. The best fitting model was found to be one in which there were four factors: discomfort, sympathy, embarrassment, and vulnerability. Changes in attitudes after a one-year training course were found to be minimal. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
