We divided our research of social integration of blind people in two parts: qualitative and quantitative. In our qualitative research we interviewed 5 blind people from different social groups about their social integration and their problems. They face problems such as stereotypes about blind people in education and employment, distorted media picture of blind people, problems of disability allowance and unaccessibility of some public contents. Because attitudes of sighted people influence social integration of blind people, we have conducted survey toward blind people and their education, employment and relationships on 200 students of the University of Zagreb. Our results confirmed our hypothesis – women and people who had prior contact with blind people will have better attitudes toward blind people and their social integration, while people more apt to social domination and students of technical sciences will have more negative attitudest toward blind people and their social integration. Results of our quantitative research leans toward more positive attitudes toward blind people and their social integration, and this could be attributed to students' liberal attitudes toward minority groups, so future research should be oriented on attitudes of general population in order to get more realistic insight into the problem of our research.
