Abstract:
There are no significant studies regarding the views and attitudes of Greek Special Education Teachers towards the sexuality of people with intellectual disability (ID) in the Greek bibliography. This paper aims at enlightening some aspects of this subject. 105 teachers working at schools in Thesprotia Prefecture (Greece) have been the sample of this paper. Data collection was done by the use of questionnaire and the statistical analysis was done with SPSS (version 21.0). The research showed that Greek teachers have a positive attitude towards the issue of sexuality of people with intellectual disability. However, it was noticed that a great number of false myths and stereotypes that prevail in the Greek teaching community seem to affect their views regarding the subject under investigation. Additionally, it seems that the shaping of teachers’ positive attitude towards the sexuality of people with intellectual disability is significantly influenced by various demographic factors.
