Specialness of Special Education.
Leitch, Davis; Sodhi, S. S.
B. C. Journal of Special Education, v10 n4 p349-58 1986
The article criticizes current special education practices, noting that the concept of individual differences has led ultimately to the practice of labeling children with special needs. The "medical model" has put children in special classes, where they tend to perpetuate and reinforce both the labels and behaviors implied by those labels. (Author/JW)
