Regional Conference in Special Education (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 23-24, 1968). Final Report.
Weatherman, Richard, Comp.
The report summarizes the results of discussions at a regional special education conference. Problem areas considered (and suggestions made) were relationships with regular education, image and attitude toward handicapped children and special education, teacher training, retention of good personnel, school's role in preschool programs, diagnosis and placement, communication, federal funding, and educational research. Included in the document are summary comments by Maynard C. Reynolds and the text of two major addresses: Is Much of Special Education (as we have known it) Obsolete?, by Lloyd M. Dunn, which is a blueprint for change in education for children with mild or moderate learning problems, including those classified as cultural-familial educable mentally handicapped; and Handicapped Children in Modern Society, by Robert J. Havighurst, also dealing with the children labeled educable mentally handicapped due to environmental and social disadvantagement. (KW)
