Forlin, Chris; Jobling, Anne; Carroll, Annemaree
Journal of International Special Needs Education, v4 p32-38 2001
A study investigated the differing interactional patterns of 1197 Australian preservice teachers with people with disabilities. Results indicate that even though preservice teachers reported being fearful and concerned about their own vulnerability, these concerns did not appear to cause them excess discomfort in their contact with people with disabilities.
