Abstract

Acceptance of children with special needs is very important in terms of achieving a successful inclusion. Children's acceptance should be assessed in order to see their needs and develop effective interventions in the inclusive settings. A total of 161 children between 4 and 7 years old were participated in the study. The children's acceptance levels were examined using the "Acceptance Scale for Kindergartners- Revised" (ASK-R). The results revealed that the children in Turkey had low acceptance levels. It was found that the gender, age, and income level were effective on the children's acceptance levels whereas the parents' education level and having a classmate with special needs did not significantly affect the acceptance.
