Forty-five preschool children were interviewed and their classrooms observed to determine their ideas about helping others, their understanding of emotions, their acceptance of individuals with disabilities, and their social contact with classmates with disabilities. Children with social contact with disabled classmates had significantly higher scores on measures of emotional understanding and acceptance of children with disabilities. (Contains references.)
