Abstract

This study was done to determine the attitudes of 18-48 year old mall employees towards persons with disabilities. Each subject was asked to accomplish the Attitudes toward Disabled Persona (ATDP) scale. The ATDP scale was constructed to measure attitudes of persona with and without disabilities towards person with disabilities. Results show that thereis no significant relationship between the respondent's age and their attitude towards PWD. Educational attainment of the respondents and their personal interaction with PWD have no significant relationship with their attitudes. Base don the outcome of the study, the researchers recommend that there should be programs to increase the mall employee's attitude towards PWD like conducting more seminars to further enhance their knowledge about the rights and existence of persons with disability. Mass communication like TV programs, newspapers, movies, textbooks also the social media have an inevitable role in the development of attitudes. The social media have the reshape the attitudes towards the PWD and discriminatory practices. Persons with disabilities should be introduced as good models like having documentary programmes that can raise community awareness
