Special Education in Economically Deprived Areas.
Joseph, Shirley J.
The paper addresses the recommendations of the First Caribbean Conference in Mental Retardation held in Jamaica (1970) which have not been implemented in most territories. Focus is placed on adaptation of existing curricula in teacher education to include course work and practica opportunities in special education. Attention is also given to the packaging of multi-media materials which could be produced in the region by local personnel for use in public information programs. (Author/SBH)
