ABSTRACT

This study aimed to provide information on occupational stress and coping strategies of teachers at daycare centers for young children with disabilities. To do this, a questionnaire was distributed to 139 teachers working at specialized daycare centers for young children with disabilities or inclusive daycare centers for young children with disabilities in the area of Honam(Gwangju, Chonnam, and Chonbuk). One hundred thirteen questionnaires were returned and analyzed to answer three research questions as follows:① What is the level of occupational stress of teachers at daycare centers for young children with disabilities?② What are the coping strategies of teachers at daycare centers for young children with disabilities?③ Is there any differences in occupational stress and coping strategies of teachers at daycare centers for young children with disabilities according to background variables such as gender, age, education level, major, marital status, center location, service field, working career, working hours, monthly pay, and total number of children at the center? The results are discussed in relation to previous research in order of the three research questions and some considerations for future research are presented.
