Abstract

A group of 104 third-grade students told stories in response to pictures of adults labeled mentally ill, physically disabled, or unlabeled, and answered questions regarding expected behavior of these adults. Results indicate that, children of this age hold more overall negative attitudes about adults labeled mentally ill than about those designated as physically disabled or nondisabled.
