Parental attitudes of children with and without disabilities concerning inclusion are essential factors in the implementation of inclusion programs. This study examines the attitudes of parents of children without disabilities in a private school setting, towards inclusion of children with disabilities. Forty-nine parents of children with no identified disabilities were surveyed. All of these children attended a private day school. A 20-item questionnaire was utilized to examine parents' perceptions of inclusion. The data suggest parents feel children with disabilities benefit academically and socially from inclusion in a private school setting. Results also indicate that parents of children without disabilities generally support inclusion. Parents expressed concern regarding possible negative effects of inclusion of children with behavioral or severe disabilities.
