Attitudes Toward Disability and Social Inclusion: An Exploratory Analysis


  • Maria Isabel Novo-Corti


Our work deals with inclusion of disabled students at university. Our premise is that young people are most likely to empathize towards disabled people. We have focused on attitude of students at university, trying to identifying those variables which would make them more liable to assist disabled people and to facilitate their integration. In order to answer our question, we based our research on the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). We've made an enquiry to university students and we've developed the model for young peoples’ perceptions of disability. Our findings are hopeful in the way to inclusion.
