Social Distance and Tolerance of Students Secondary Vocational Inclusive Schools



The study aimed to assess the changes in the level of tolerance of healthy students to the students with HIA, we discuss the change of the social distance between patients with HIA and healthy students in secondary vocational schools that have implemented programs of inclusive education. The primary survey was attended by 222 people: 66 people with the HIA and 156 people without the developmental disease, the follow-up study - by 222 people: 66 people with the HIA and 156 people without the disease. The basis of the study was the measurement of social distance using questionnaires developed by S.B. Fedorov, under the supervision by L.M. Shipitsina at the Institute of Special Pedagogy and Psychology (2000). We revealed the specific features of the formation of tolerance among students without pathology to the persons with HIA. We show different students' attitudes toward people with different developmental pathologies and multidirectional dynamics in relation to social interactions in various forms in healthy students and students with the HIA. The joint training of healthy students and those with HIA revealed a trend towards more conscious understanding of the characteristics of social interaction with persons with HIA in healthy students.
