Non-Formal Education and the Handicapped in Developing Countries: A Selected, Annotated Bibliography. Annotated Bibliography #7.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Non-Formal Education Information Center.
Compiled from the resource collection of Michigan State University's Non-Formal Education Information Center, this bibliography presents approximately 50 international publications on topics ranging from the education, environment, vocational training, rehabilitation, and health of the disabled to strategies for preventing disabilities, as well as a listing of 26 individuals and organizations worldwide who are interested in non-formal education and the handicapped. Three important themes covered by the citations are noted as: (1) the development of relevant community-based training and rehabilitation programs that reflect local cultural and social contexts and promote the participation and integration of the handicapped in mainstream society; (2) the special needs of handicapped children, including the long-term personal and social benefits attained from receiving education, vocational training, and rehabilitation at an early age; and (3) the need for educating the non-handicapped to change stereotyped attitudes. Titles listed include discussions of many programs in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Books, pamphlets, directories, reports, journals, newsletters, special issues, and articles are listed, and addresses are provided for individuals, organizations, and sources of cited publications. Annotations indicate the availability of the publications cited in languages other than English. A list of the staff of the Non-Formal Education Information Center from 1976 to 1982 concludes the publication. (Author/ESR)
