Translated title:
Attitudes and beliefs of general education teachers about children with autism who study in the primary school
The study of Autism is a multidimensional and complex theoretical and research concern for both causes and diagnosis as well as therapeutic approaches.
The inclusion of students with autism and the role of teachers in their implementation is also a subject of continuous study and search with regard to the factors influencing teachers' views on the inclusion of children with autism.
The theory of planned behavior both with regard to the reasoned and planned action, is a very important methodological tool for investigating the attitudes and intentions of teachers for their behavior, either on the subjective patterns of intentions or on the behavioral perceptual control of their intentions. In our case, the theory of the planned behavior was the basic tool for compiling the questionnaire aimed at (among others) measuring the attitude of Greek general education teachers towards autistic students, their perceptions about the problems autistic students cause to other students in the classroom, teacher’s actions to help them in the perceptual behavioral control and their beliefs about training, the regulatory beliefs as well as the control beliefs about their training on autism and management of the phenomenon in the classroom and their training needs.
The results of the study confirm or coincide with the results of international surveys with regard to what Greek teachers believe about the benefits of inclusion of pupils with autism, as well as their attitudes and intentions to be trained to manage students with autistic features in the best possible way.
