The Interaction with Disabled Persons Scale (IDP) was designed to measure attitudes towards people with disabilities (Gething, 1991). Using exploratory factor analysis with the 20 items scale, Gething (1994) concluded that the scale has six stable and relatively related factors. In the present study, the IDP was used with a sample of 244 trained midwives to examine the psychometric properties of the IDP, particularly to test Gething’s (1994) six-factor and MacLean and Ganon’s (1995) two-factor models. As found by Loo (2001), the current study supports neither the six-factor nor the two-factor models of previous studies.
