- This research assesses parents’ attitude towards children with special needs based on the availability of information regarding inclusive preschool education programs. The research was conducted with 268 parents of pre-kindergarten children from inclusive preschools in Jakarta and Depok. Of these, 118 parents received informationregarding inclusive education programs from their children’s school and 150 parents received no such information. A PATCH (Parent Attitude Towards Child with Handicap) survey was conducted to quantify attitudes towards children with special needs among parents of non-special needs preschool children. A significant difference was observed between the attitudes towards children with special needs of those parents who received information and those who did not. Parents who received the information exhibited more positive attitudes than parents who did not receive information.
