LEITE, Lúcia Pereira  and  LACERDA, Cristina Broglia Feitosa de. The construction of a scale on the conceptions of disability: methodological procedures. Psicol. USP [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.432-441. ISSN 0103-6564.

This article is based on the precepts of historical-cultural psychology to analyze how disability is conceptualized and its implications. The study describes the development of a methodological procedure to identify conceptions of disability. After a review of national and international bibliography, four concepts were circumscribed: organic, psychosocial, historical-cultural and metaphysical. For each concept five assertions were defined and arranged at five ordinal points. The scale was evaluated by judges with theoretical-methodological familiarity on disabilities. It was calculated the index of agreement between original classification of utterances with marks, and the return and review of opposing classifications. Initial applications and resulting treatments allowed the conceiving of the Conceptions of Disability Scale (CDS).

Keywords : disability; social inclusion; scale; concept; psychology.Contextualizing the concept of disability.
