Bilingual/Bicultural Education--Special Education: An Interface.
Gallegos, Robert L.; And Others
The article addresses two basic issues which relate to the education of the bilingual/bicultural handicapped child--proper assessment and appropriate classroom placement, and the provision of educational services which adequately meet the linquistic and cultural needs of the handicapped minority child. Relevant historic litigation and its impact on current special education programing is summarized. Finally, bilingual/bicultural considerations are explored, examined, and related to the needs of the exceptional bilingual child. (Author/SBH)
