image of Special Education in the Developing Countries of the Commonwealth

This study brings together information about all the major types of physical and mental handicaps affecting children in the developing countries of the Commonwealth. It maintains that increased efficiency in existing provisions through greater cooperation of effort, more effective staffing, and the concentration of effort in a limited range of projects with sufficient resources will benefit both children with special needs and the education process as a whole.

“Mental retardation is a purely social problem... In nearly all human fields the mentally retarded are more often like other people than they are different. There are more fields where the mentally retarded act exactly like normal people than where they do not.” (1)
