Objective: The aim of this study is to determine the attitudes of the managers and officers

towards disabled people by using Questionnaire of Attitude Scale towards Disabled (QASTD)

and related factors.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Erciyes University on 427 people

working as managers and officers. Data were collected with a Socio-demographic data form

and the Questionnaire of Attitude Scale towards Disabled (QASTD).

Results: The mean QASTD score was 77.94±19.74, while that of educational environment was

5.16±2.24, personal characteristics was 13.73±4.86, working life was 16.08±5.00, interpersonal relationships was 15.03±5.02, family life was 7.02±2.29, and competency-independent life was

Conclusion: The mean scores obtained from the QASTD scale and subscales were lower than

the cut-off points used for the division of negative and positive attitudes.
