Title: Teacher attitudes toward students with disabilities in their classroom
Author: Sokolowski, Karly
Abstract: This study surveyed attitudes of general elementary classroom teachers toward students with disabilities who were educated in the general education classroom. The Opinions Relative to the Integration of Students with Disabilities (ORI) scale, revised by Antonak and Larrivee (1995), was used to assess teacher attitudes. The 6-point Likert-like rating scale was administered to 48 educators in a large, suburban school district in New York State. A Cronbach coefficient alpha, conducted from teacher responses, indicated a reliability coefficient of 0.92. The proposed four factor multidimensional structure of the ORI was supported in this study. The four subscales included: (a) Benefits of Integration, (b) Integrated Classroom Management, (c) Perceived Ability to Teach Students with Disabilities, and (d) Special versus Integrated General Education.
