Disability Care & Education in 19th Century India: Dates, Places & Documentation, with Some Additional Material on Mental Retardation and Physical Disabilities up to 1947. Revised Version.
Miles, M.
This monograph uses brief excerpts from many sources to document the history of the education and care of individuals with disabilities in India, primarily in the 19th century. An introduction describes the author's methodology in compiling and annotating the excerpts, which are listed alphabetically by locality in India. Under each locality, excerpts are listed chronologically and typically describe individual children, the institutions they attended, services provided to them, and the children's responses. A separate section provides excerpts from documents about institutions and services for individuals with mental retardation and physical disabilities in the early 20th century (to 1965). An appendix provides excerpts from legal papers concerning the establishment of a specific asylum for the blind at Benares. (Contains approximately 300 references.) (DB)
