Some tendencies in teachers’ preparation for work with children of atypical development in the Republic of Serbia

The subject of this study is the research of teachers’ attitudes towards their own preparedness for work with children of atypical development (AD) in elementary schools in Serbia. The aim of the research is to determine the teachers’ attitudes towards (a) their basic preparation for work with children of AD, (b) whether their participation in the programs of the Institute for the Advancement of Education and Pedagogical Work contributes to their competence for work with children of AD, (c) whether they have support of school professional team in work with children of AD, (d) improvement of work organization which would contribute to the quality of the performance of individual educational program. The descriptive analytical method and the technique of survey were implemented in the research. The survey questionnaire was used as the instrument which, among other attitudes, specifically investigated attitudes of teachers in lower and upper grades of elementary school on their own preparedness for work with children of AD. One hundred and fifteen teachers participated in the survey in elementary schools in Serbia, who perform teaching according to individual educational programs suitable to capabilities of children of AD. The starting point of the research was a conception that teachers in elementary schools in Serbia are not adequately prepared for a quality planning and realization of individual educational program for work with children of AD. The research findings have shown that the attitudes of teachers in lower and upper grades of elementary school 1) do not differ in the assessment of basic preparation and competence for work with children of AD; 2) secondly, they do not differ in the assessment on cooperation with school professional team in work with children of AD; 3) finally, elementary school teachers see the reduction of total number of children in a class as the key indicator in measuring the quality improvement of individual educational program realization.
