Resources in Special Education.
Scottish Council for Educational Technology, Glasgow.
The use of various resources in special education in Scotland is described in this collection of 12 papers. Written by classroom teachers, the first five relate individual attempts to deal with particular problems, i.e., science education for the visually handicapped, two different approaches to teaching the mentally handicapped, art for the physically handicapped, and sound perception training for the deaf. The next four articles illustrate the type of provision that can result from cooperation between teachers and outside agencies in dealing with specific difficulties. Descriptions of materials for use with the mentally handicapped include two mathematics projects, a reading and language resource center, and an audiovisual kit for social education called "The Kerr Family." The two final papers outline examples of attempts to provide on-going support systems which are constantly on hand and to which teachers can refer pupils with individual learning difficulties. (CHC)
