Bilingual Special Education and This Special Issue.
Figueroa, Richard A.; And Others
Exceptional Children, v56 n2 p174-78 Oct 1989
Bilingual special education has emerged because of problems faced by linguistic minorities in special education. Progress and innovations begun by federal law have not yet reached linguistic minorities, particularly Hispanic children. The medical-model, reductionist paradigm is inimical to bilinguals. A paradigm shift and redefinition of bilingual special education are needed. (Author/MSE)
