ABSTRACT

This study is intended to analyze the background variable factors which affect teachers' attitudes toward mainstreaming, and the variable factors which relate types of developmental delay with teachers' attitudes toward mainstreaming. The subjects of the study are three hundred twenty seven teachers who work for mainstreaming kindergartens located in the area of Daegu City and Gyeongbuk Province. The results of the study are as follows. First, such variable factors as age, education and career are found to affect the teachers' attitudes toward mainstreaming in a significant way, but such factors as taking a course in subjects related to developmental delay or not, training in fields connected with developmental delay or not, and being in charge of inclusion or not, are found to insignificantly affect teachers' attitudes toward mainstreaming. Second, it is found that the factor of learning expectation shows significant relationship between types of developmental delay and teachers' attitudes toward mainstreaming.
