Special Education for the Greek Bilingual Child: Greece, Cyprus and the United States.
Spiridakis, John N.
Greek speaking children with special educational needs are confronted with severely limited resources both in the United States and abroad. In New York City, Boston, Athens, and Cyprus, there is a paucity of educational personnel trained to work with this population. As a pilot survey conducted in the Unites States and abroad illustrates, along with a paucity of trained personnel in the area of Greek bilingual special education, there is a lack of evaluation and curriculum resources with which to identify and instruct Greek special education students. The general conditions of Greek bilingual special education both in the United States and in Greece and Cyprus are articulated by the author, along with recommendations for future action. (Author/SB)
