Also noted are provisions for removing architectural barriers, the goal of assisting each pupil to reach his/her fullest self-realization, placement procedures, educational goals (self-realization, effective human relations, economic efficiency, and civic responsibility), and the need to individualize curriculum presentation to accord with students' needs.
