Disabled Learners in South Asia: Lessons from the Past for Educational Exporters.
Miles, M.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v44 n2 p97-104 Jun 1997
This paper examines the cultural traditions of South Asia, especially India and Pakistan, regarding the education of children with special needs. This valuable cultural heritage has been largely ignored in the inflow of western educational ideas and the professionalization of special education, especially in the late 19th century. Improved cross-cultural perspectives can benefit both East and West. (DB)
