Abstract: This article examines the relationship of three factors that affect special education staff's management of children and adults with disabilities - staff's approach to learning about their-work and problem solving (learning approach), their belief in their ability to affect their learners' performance and behaviour (efficacy), and their general sense of personal empowerment (locus of control). These factors have been found to correlate with staff effectiveness. Thus, an understanding of these factors can guide organizations to better support staff learning and development. Implications for improving the quality of teaching and learning within training programmes, schools, and service organizations are discussed.
