Final Report of the International Symposium on Further Education of Teachers of Handicapped Youth (Prague, Czechoslovakia, October 25-28, 1977).
European Information Center of the Charles Univ. for Further Education of Teachers. Prague (Czechoslovakia).
The International Symposium on Further Education of Teachers of Handicapped Youth involved 79 specialists with the goal of examining concepts of further education in individual European countries. Two basic problems were formulated--the necessity of further (life long) education of special education personnel and the need for international cooperation and mutual information on this problem. Excursions were made to special schools in Prague. Five recommendations resulted from the meetings, including that the further education of personnel in special education should be considered as an organic component of their life long education and should be based on the closer coordination of general and special education. Among appended materials are a copy of the program and agenda and a list of participants. (SBH)
