Background. The objective of the paper was to determine attitudes represented by students of the following fields of study: Physical Education and Physiotherapy at the University School of Physical Education in Wrocław towards people with intellectual disabilities. Material and methods. The respondents (N = 167) completed a modified (the notion: a disabled person/invalid and a handicapped person was replaced by one term: a person with intellectual disabilities) version of Scale of Attitudes towards the Handicapped by A.E. Sękowski. The obtained results have undergone a two-way ANOVA statistical analysis based on the following design: gender (female vs. male) × field of study (Physical Education vs. Physiotherapy) × attitudes towards people with intellectual disabilities. Results and conclusions. The obtained results indicate that more positive attitudes towards people with intellectual disabilities are shown by students of Physiotherapy than those studying Physical Education. The post hoc comparison of means in the statistically insignificant two-way interaction of students’ genders and their field of study indicates that the effect observed previously is caused by less favorable attitudes towards people with intellectual disabilities shown by female students of Physical Education than by the rest of subjects.
