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 Provision of Buildings and Equipment

Despite the admirable efforts of the Unesco Regional Building Centres and some national organisations, the general standard of school building in developing Commonwealth countries remains very low. Much of the research undertaken has been directed primarily at producing more cheaply schools of conventional design. Investigations have concentrated on materials and construction methods rather than are appraisal of needs and the evolution of new types of educational building.
