Remembering Memories about Students with Disabilities
Miller, Maury; Gresham, Pamela; Fouts, Bonnia
Journal of Instructional Psychology, v38 n3 p173-180 2011
Preservice general education classroom teachers in an inclusion course were asked to describe their own earliest memories of students with disabilities in school. Substantial literature links early memories to subsequent thoughts and attitudes. Subjects also completed the Opinions Relative to Integration of Students with Disabilities attitude scale, and memories were studied for differences between those who scored higher and lower on this attitude scale. Differences are reported in the themes of initial reactions to the student with a disability, types of assistance needed by that student, types of contact they had with that student, explanation of the disability provided, and specific characteristics subjects described. Provisions for using these memories in the inclusion course are provided.
