The effects of gender and type of disability on the attitudes of children toward their peers with physical disabilities
The study investigated the effects of gender and type of physical disability on the attitudes of kindergarten, and first, second and third grade elementary school children in the USA towards participating in recreational activities with peers who have physical disabilities. Study participants comprised 18 females and 15 males. Subjects were presented with stimulus drawings of a peer who either used a wheelchair, had an arm amputated, or did not have a visible physical disability.
