The Perceptions of Learning Disabilities by General Education and Special Classroom Teachers in Korea
Kim, Kyeong-Hwa
Journal of the International Association of Special Education, v6 n1 p25-33 Spr 2005
This study investigated the perceptions of learning disabilities (LD) by 65 general and 52 special educators in Korea and their opinions about including students with LD in general education classrooms. Results indicated that general educators were aware of the characteristics of LD but not enough to identify them in individual students. In addition, both groups of teachers showed negative attitudes towards integrating students with LD into general education classrooms. The majority of the respondents recognized that students with LD were not underachievers; however, overall general educators lacked an in-depth understanding of this disability. Conclusions were drawn from the results and suggestions for addressing the results were proposed. (Contains 10 tables.)
