The Impact of the Japanese Culture on Special Education Programming.
Ogamo, Hideo
The paper reviews the historical and social background of prejudice and discrimination toward the handicapped in Japan and considers its effect on special education programing. The history of welfare work for the physically handicapped is traced from the Primitive Age to the present. The origins of prejudice and discrimination are discussed; contradictions which still remain in Japan are pointed out. (SBH)
