Ministry of Education, Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
Written in English and Arabic, the document summarizes educational and rehabilitation services provided for handicapped children in Saudi Arabia by that country's Department of Special Education. Tables present statistical data on types of education and the numbers of institutes, classes, and students involved in each; student enrollment and staff figures for girls education; and similar figures for special education institutes. The text describes the disability groups attended to by the special education program (blind, mentally retarded, physically disabled, deaf), social services for this population, and medical care under the administration of the Department of Special Education. Special Education planned projects within the Ministry of Education's 5-year plan (starting in 1970-71) are listed. Many of the photographs illustrating the text are of activities at the Al-Amal Institute for the deaf. (KW)
