Children with Disabilities in Ordinary Schools: An Action Study of Non-Designed Educational Integration in Pakistan.
Miles, M.
The study of disabled children attending ordinary schools in Pakistan reports that 1.9% of the 43,416 pupils in urban primary and secondary schools in the Northwest Frontier were reported by their teaches to have a perceptible disability. The breakdown of specific conditions varied from 32% with speech impairments to 8% with hearing loss. Details are given of class distribution, daily travel arrangements, and estimated severity of impairment. Follow-up of the disabled students gradually involved social workers and school principals. Outcomes of the study include public awareness, delivery of rehabilitation treatment and aids to an estimated 250 disabled children in ordinary schools, and increased government awareness of the needs of this population. Recommendations are offered for the government as well as the schools. (CL)
