CARVALHO-FREITAS, Maria Nivalda de. Validation of the Inventory on Disability Conceptions in Work Situations (ICD-ST). Psico-USF [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.1, pp.33-42. ISSN 2175-3563.

Analysis and management of insertion conditions of people with disabilities is a new challenge to workplaces due to the Quota Schemes. The purpose of this study was to design and validate a scale about the way how people realize the disability and the work possibilities of people with disability (PWD). The scale entitled Inventory of the Disability Conceptions in Work Situations was administered to 163 managers from 18 Brazilian enterprises. An exploratory factor analysis was carried out to get evidence on the construct validity. This analysis generated seven factors Spiritual, Normality, Inclusion, Performance, Benefits, Relationship and Training. The reliability coefficients varied from 0.53 to 0.81., with the result of 0.69 to the global scale. Factors have theoretical meaning considering the literature and expert judgment of the item's relevance. Validation brings evidence that different ways of realizing the disability can be identify among managers who work on PWD.
