|Abstract: ||Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has been particularly risky for people with disabilities and severe medical conditions, not only because the virus may be a direct threat to their physical health but also because of social exclusion and negating their needs and rights.
Objective: This study aimed to assess the attitudes of people from different age groups toward people with intellectual disability (ID).
Methods: The study included 135 people (19–85 years old) and was conducted in May 2020. Data was collected using the Multidimensional Attitudes Scale Toward Persons With Disabilities and a self-designed Questionnaire regarding the attitudes toward people with ID during the pandemic. Data analysis was performed using SPSS 24 (ANOVA).
Results: The results of the study showed that the general attitudes were only slightly supportive and differed among people of different age groups: the youngest generation expressed the most positive attitudes and the oldest participants expressed the most negative ones.
Conclusions: As the pandemic is spreading rapidly with no definitive solution, awareness to create more positive attitudes toward people with ID and recognizing their needs is essential.|
