First published in 1979. This report discusses the existing practices of over 500 primary, secondary and special schools with their special needs pupils. The study outlines the variety of provisions, facilities and equipment in the schools, and the extent of use with slow learners. It maps out the curricular activities in many organisational contexts and across all subject areas, and discusses comparative strengths and weaknesses. It relates the findings to the problems of improving the quality of education offered to slow-learning pupils, suggesting areas where improvement is needed and outlining possible new approaches.
