Book Description

First published in 1985. The responses to special educational needs in the 1980s prompted radical changes in the initial and in-service education of teachers. This title is the result of a major conference which was called to anticipate the combined effects on training and special educational needs work and to project a spectrum of positive responses. The authors are drawn from all branches of education in order to provide a critical review of developments since 1983 in teacher-education and to discuss the current recommendations on training to meet special educational needs both in Great Britain and the rest of Europe.
