ABSTRACT

This study is aimed at analyzing the effect for the improved program of disability awareness on the basis of changes in attitudes of non-disabled peers toward disabled ones of 334 non-disabled primary school students in Jinju city, Kyeongnam, Korea and thereby discussing the implied direction for the improved program. The results of this study are as follows:First, the program was found to have an effect so that the attitudes toward their disabled peers of the normal students changed positively. Second, there was no change in the attitudes toward their disabled peers by grade after the implementation of the program. This is mainly because the program was designed for higher graders, confined to 5th and 6th graders, and thus it was difficult to identify the difference by grade on account of slight difference between the two groups of higher grade. Third, there was a change in the attitudes toward their disabled peers by gender after the implementation of the program. Fourth, after the implementation of the program, there was a change in the attitudes toward their disabled peers depending on whether their school has a special class or not. The score of acceptance attitude toward their disabled peers of non-disabled students who enter a normal primary school with a special class was found higher than that of non-disabled students who enter a normal primary school without special classes.
