Special Education in England and Wales.
Organized in question and answer form, the book provides an introduction to the field of special education in England and Wales. Services are discussed and outlined for children who are educationally subnormal (mentally handicapped), delicate, physically handicapped, maladjusted, epileptic, hearing impaired, visually impaired, defective in speech, and multiply handicapped. Case studies are used to illustrate the different types of handicaps. Also described are various placements such as home instruction, hospital teaching, special classes in regular schools, and remedial services. Children unsuitable for education in school are discussed; programs of teacher training are considered; and voluntary organizations concerned with handicapped children are listed. Each chapter cites references for suggested reading, and there is a listing of 27 films about handicapped children. (DF)
