Family Involvement Makes Education More Economic.
de Noronha, Mario; de Noronha, Zelia Elisabeth Feliciano
Some normal and special schools in Portugal were surveyed to test the hypothesis that integration of the handicapped child in normal schools and society is more effective than education in special schools. Data was collected on students' social achievement, psychological adjustment, academic performance, financial costs, family involvement, and therapist and teacher relationship with families. From profiles of eight handicapped children it was concluded that integration is cheaper, socially and psychologically better, and requires fewer technicians, special buildings, and equipment than special schools.
