Farran, Dale C.; Shonkoff, Jack P.
Early Education and Development, v5 n2 p141-51 Apr 1994
Notes that most special education children are in nonnormative category and that classification of such children as unready for school is based on factors unrelated to education. Argues that children in normative and nonnormative disability categories should be considered ready for regular education and that the readiness concept applied to children with special needs is inappropriate for any child.
