ISSUES FACING PERSONS WHO ARE BLIND SEVEN ATTITUDES REGARDING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES, SHARON HUGHEY Hosted on Sunday, January 26, 2014

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen:

I will begin by presenting one attitude which will be discussed before proceeding to the next. I found these attitudes in the literature when I was doing my dissertation on Attitudes Toward People with Disabilities, and thought they were interesting, as I hadn't conceptualized attitudes in this way before.
