Comparison of attitudes of teachers of physical and musical education toward inclusion of children with disabilities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

56 elementary teachers of physical education and 54 teachers of elementary music education responded to the Teacher Integration Attitudes Questionnaire which assesses teachers' attitudes regarding inclusion of children with disabilities into regular education settings. Analysis indicated that children with emotional and behavioral disorders were perceived less favorably by teachers of music education and children with orthopedic handicaps were perceived less favorably by teachers of physical education. The type and severity of disability appeared to influence teachers' attitudes towards including children with disabilities in regular education classrooms.
