Implicit bias towards persons with physical disability

“People don’t always say what’s on their minds. One reason is that they are unwilling. Another reason is that they are unable.”

This laboratory-based study aimed to replicate Menatti, Smyth, Teachman, and Nosek (2013) and Yusainy, Thohari, and Gustomy (2016) research on the efficacy of implicit bias intervention in the reductions of stigma towards persons with physical disability. Implicit bias intervention was given using a computer-based response-latency paradigm called Single Category Implicit Association Test (SC-IAT; Karpinski, & Steinman, 2006) presented with Inquisit v. (2014).

The virtual laboratory for implicit bias paradigm is accessible at Project Implicit.
