Inclusion and specific learning disabilities: General education teacher's attitude

Public Deposited

This research study looked at the components that may influence teacher attitudes in an accepting manner toward including students with learning disabilities. The purpose of this study was to examine the reasons that may influence the attitudes of general education teachers toward including students with specific learning disabilities. The factors that were examined in the study included gender, length of years teaching, and the amount of special education courses taken in college. Elementary general education teachers from two schools in an urban school district in New Jersey were given the ATTM-m survey to determine their attitude towards special needs students. The results of this study indicated that general education teachers regardless of gender, length of years teaching, and the amount of special education courses take, were not willing to accept the inclusion of special needs students into the general education classroom. It is recommended that future research is needed to further investigate these findings.
