Abstract


In this study, it is aimed to examine whether there is a significant difference between the social acceptance levels of the normally developing middle school students towards students with disability according to the variables of gender, grade level, number of siblings, income level and whether there are individuals with disability in the family. This study was conducted in overall scanning model with appropriate sampling model. The population of this research consists of 6th and 7th grade students in 3 secondary schools in the city centre of Burdur in the 2019-2020 academic year and associated to the Ministry of National Education. The sample of the research consists of 220 students, 130 of whom are female (59.1%), 90 of which are male (40.9%). The "Social Acceptance Scale" was used to collect the data. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), t, were calculated by using test techniques. As a result of the study, in general when the results of the study were evaluated, it was seen that the average score of "peer attitude" of female students was higher than male students. No significant difference was found between the total scores of the social acceptance scale subscales, "social skills" and "student behaviour" subscales and "social acceptance scale" according to the grade level of students with normal development. According to the number of siblings of the participants, a significant difference was found between the "student behaviour" subscale of the social acceptance scale and the total score averages of the "social acceptance scale".
