Written in both English and French, the directory lists special education facilities in 66 countries and territories. Stated for each country are responsible authority, staff, institutions, administrative functions, publications, and other public or private organizations concerned; in addition, a table shows number of public institutions, number of special education classes in other schools, and enrollment figures for each country. United Nation activities in special education from 1963 to 1967 are reviewed, as are international associations with activities in special education. A description of international action to promote special education covers Recommendation No. 51 of the International Conference on Public Education concerning the organization of special education for mentally handicapped children and two resolutions of UNESCO.
