    Abstract

    Pupils’ views on classmates with special needs have a significant impact on the wellbeing of children with special needs in the classroom and consequently on the quality of their work. In my research I wanted to check what these views are and what is a social position of special needs pupils in the classroom. In particular I was wondering if there are any differences between countries: Slovenia, Australia and USA. In the theoretical part I introduced different groups of children with special needs, different ways of their integration and education programs in which they can be included, I focused on the differences between countries: Slovenia, Australia and USA, and briefly described views and interpersonal relations. In empirical part I used a questionnaire to identify pupils’ views on classmates with special needs and integration and a questionnaire to establish the social position of special needs pupils in the classroom. 205 pupils from different countries (Slovenia, Australia, USA) took part in the research and I found out that boys, regardless of the country they live in, have approximately the same tolerance toward the children with special needs as the girls. But there are some differences between the countries; least tolerant are pupils in Slovenia followed by American children and the highest level of tolerance have children in Australia.
