The Roles of Government and the Voluntary Associations in the Education of Handicapped Children in Queensland.
Queensland Dept. of Education, Brisbane (Australia).
The report by the Queensland (Australia) Advisory Council for Special Education reviews the roles of government and voluntary associations in providing services to the handicapped. An historical review follows a discussion of principles underlying the education of handicapped children. Current Queensland provisions for the education of handicapped children are reviewed, including information on government assistance to voluntary associations. The impact of voluntary associations on preschool and school age children is examined, and the changing role of the voluntary associations as the right to education becomes more of a reality is noted. In two final sections, the Council lists its major concerns on the topic as well as 20 recommendations in service delivery, administration, and responsibility for education. (CL)
