•Percentage of citizens who think that children with disability are equal members of the society as all other citizens, is not changed compared with the previous survey wave, but it is significantly higher than before the campaign (90% now and 74% before the campaign).
•Ability of the state and the society to extensively help children with disability is recognized by 56% of citizens, which is for 9% more than in the period before implementation of the campaign.
•However, increased is the percentage of citizens who think that, regardless of professional assistance and special treatment by the state and the society, it is not possible to make any progress in developing abilities of children with disability for life in the society (used to be 3%, now is 9% of citizens).
•Visible key positive changes, or continuing the positive trend, refer to higher percentage of citizens agreeing with inclusion of children with disability in regular schools, as well as thinking that it is better for children with disability to live in families (biological or foster), than in specialized institutions.
