A New Alternative for the Training of Personnel for Handicapped Children.
Lugo, Delia E.
The author describes a Caribbean project to pool professional resources for an international collaboration in the training of personnel for handicapped children. It is reported that the Institute was developed as a technical and professional arm of the Caribbean Association on Mental Retardation and that it functions as an itinerant, evolving, structure. The Institute is noted to constitute an alternative to meet the needs of trained personnel in small, developing countries of diverse cultures and languages which are geographically close and have common needs.
