ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to assess the local child care centers in Daejeon in terms of how they serve children with disabilities to cope with crisis in developmental stage. The results are as follows: First, 47 children at 33 centers were diagnosed with disabilities in the Daejeon area and the most frequent type of disability among them was intellectual disability, while 140 children at 67 centers were classified as borderline disability and a majority of them had learning disorder. Second, most of the local child care centers were not equipped with necessary facilities to serve children with disabilities. Third, most staff in local child care centers felt that they would need more professional knowledge on disability and learning about emotional response to children with disability. Finally, staff at local child care center were willing to accept children with disabilities despite physical hardship and personnel constraints.
