Special Education in the Developing Countries of the Commonwealth

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.



The Future of Special Education in the Low-income Countries

Few governments have found it possible to regard special educational provision for the handicapped as more than peripheral to their overall development plans. Superficially this attitude seems to have justification, for resources are limited and claims numerous.
