DIAS, Gleice Noronha; CARVALHO-FREITAS, Maria Nivalda de  and  TETTE, Raissa Pedrosa Gomes. Evidence of validity of the inventory of perceptions of attitudinal barriers at work by people with disabilities. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.3, pp. 248-258. ISSN 1413-294X.

The objective of this study is to report the construction process and initial tests to identify evidence of validity of the Inventory of Perceptions of Attitudinal Barriers at Work by people with disabilities (IABW-PWD). Two studies were carried out: (1) construction of the inventory and the evaluation of the adequacy of the representation of the construct through factorial analysis and internal consistency analysis; (2) evaluation of evidence of convergent validity of IABT-PWD with the construct of organizational socialization. In the first study, a survey was conducted with 54 people with disabilities from various regions of the country. In the second study, an investigation was carried out with 17 employees with disabilities from seven municipalities in Minas Gerais. The factorial analysis indicated a unifactorial solution and evidence of reliability of the instrument. The results showed strong correlations between organizational socialization and IABW-PWD and useful characteristics to understand work situations of people with disabilites.
