Bildung und Wissenschaft, n3 1997
This journal issue provides a comprehensive review of the remedial school system for students with disabilities in Germany. Introductory material describes the school system as a whole, the rights of children with disabilities within the system, and the existence of significant differences in school laws and services among the 16 German states. Text, photographs, and charts are used to describe services provided to blind pupils, pupils with impaired vision, deaf pupils, pupils with impaired hearing, mentally handicapped pupils, physically handicapped pupils, educationally subnormal pupils, pupils with speech disorders, pupils with behavioral disorders, and ill pupils. Separate sections describe early remedial treatment for young children with disabilities, the awarding of final school certificates at remedial education locations, and vocational training of young persons with disabilities. Also provided in summary form is information on the organizations responsible for remedial schools, school costs, foreign pupils, remedial teacher training, and current trends toward more integration of students with disabilities. The final section provides personal accounts of two individuals, a mentally handicapped 19-year-old who would like to be a cook, and a description of life as an adult blind student. (DB)
