Abstract: In recent years interest has developed concerning mainstreaming exceptional students into regular classroom programs. The present exploratory study was designed to investigate the attitudes of regular classroom teachers on a variety of topics associated with the integration of visually impaired students into regular classes. The aims of the study were: (a) to explore the support services, materials and educational preparation regular classroom teachers who were educating mainstreamed visually impaired students believed were required in order to more adequately meet the educational needs of these students, (b) to determine the attitudes of teachers toward visually impaired students and the mainstreaming of them into regular classrooms, and (c) to provide an information base to assist professionals in the field of education in developing effective educational and administrative policies to facilitate mainstreaming visually impaired students.
