Special Education in the Americas: Contrasts, Needs, and Possible Solutions.
Perelman, Phyllis F.
The author describes differences in the number and quality of special education programs available in Latin America and suggests directions for improved delivery of special education services. The relatively high level of services provided in Costa Rica are contrasted with the minimal services available in Honduras. The training-based model in which generic educational specialists provide inservice training to teachers is suggested to increase the number of trained personnel. Linkages between ministries of education and teacher training institutions are also encouraged. Latin American activities in special education of organizations such as the Council for Exceptional Children, the Partners of the Americas, and the Peace Corps are noted. (DB)
