Research and Development Concerning Integration of Handicapped Pupils into the Ordinary School System.
National Swedish Board of Education Stockholm. Div. of Educational Research and Development.
The report examines issues involved in mainstreaming handicapped students in Sweden. M. Soder analyzes concepts, research, and research needs in the first paper on mentaly retarded students. He suggests that the major problem is lack of cooperation among teachers. In the second paper, K. Norden and T. Ang review the concepts of integration and normalization and cite psychological implications for hearing impaired students. The third paper, by H. Svensson, analyzes the situation for visually impaired students and suggests early identification, diagnosis, and stimulation as the targets of future research. K. Paulsson's paper on the integration of physically handicapped students concludes the volume with information on cultural, psychological, and psychosocial problems facing physically handicapped students.
