Contiguity and Continuity in General and Special Education.
Bradshaw, James A., Ed.; And Others
Presented are thirteen selected papers focusing on the relationship of special education to regular education. The first short paper explains the purpose of the conference, while the next three papers discuss various aspects of mental subnormality: that many cases of mental subnormality result from prenatal famine, that mental subnormality resulting from deprivation in the existing society is society's achievement and challenge, and that factors in reproduction relate to mental subnormality. The following paper examines learning disabilities in terms of why a child cannot learn and minimal brain dysfunction. Then discussed are the special education/general education interface and the integration of professional training. A symposium on discontinuity in general education/special education reviews topics related to the realization that a basic problem is the educator himself. Papers on the reintegration of training and a model for the operational implementation of educational research and training in the classroom are than presented. A symposium on strategies, models, and ideas for action in western colleges and universities considers topics such as teacher education and student placement. Rap session comments on conference topics and explanation of the mutual goal of special and regular education are provided last. (CB)
