Ross, D. H.
This publication compiles the findings and conclusions of the 3-year first phase (1980-83) of the Unesco Sub-regional Project for Special Education in Eastern and Southern Africa. It presents the state of the art of special education and prospects for future development in Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Seychelles, Somalia, Swaziland, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The book sketches the development of special education services and related social programs in the context of the political, economic, and social environment; considers the administration and work of the recognized special education programs and other educational programs such as vocational training programs; and reviews the staff training provisions available. Five papers are then presented, describing exemplary rehabilitation services for children or adults with special education needs. They include: "A School Agricultural Training Programme: Karatina School for Mentally Handicapped Children" (Wanjiku Chege); "Developing More Effective Teaching Programs for Intellectually Handicapped Children" (S. Templer and B. Galloway); "The Rehabilitation, Training and Employment of Disabled Persons" (Rudolf van Oudheusden); "Family and Parent-Support Programs: The Community-Based Approach" (Caroline Arnold); and "Integration of Handicapped Children in Pre-School and School Education" (J. Cyril Dalais). Includes 32 references. (JDD)
