The State of the World's Children, 1981-82.
Grant, James P.
The report reviews obstacles to meeting the needs of disabled and nondisabled children throughout the world. Health, nutrition, and education crises affecting children, especially in developing countries, are reviewed. Practices which promise greater return for each dollar are cited, including using paraprofessionals, building on community participation, and linking technology to practical applications. The role of UNICEF (United Nations' Children's Fund) in pursuing these alternatives is addressed. Lessons learned by previous failures are discussed, and the importance of encouraging the impetus for change to come from within the community is stressed. (CL)
