A professor in the U of L faculty of Dr. Perkins recently returned from a year's sabbatical leave in England where he studied special education programs and opportunities. During his year Dr. Perkins also spent some time in financed by a Canada Council where he conducted similar research into special education programs. Based on his Dr. Perkins has compiled detail- ed listing all facets and sources of informa- tion on special education in Great Britain.

Although the problems of educating handicapped children are Dr. Perkins found the programs in Great Britain and Sweden differ significantly from methods used in Canada. In the the approach in Canada has been to put some atypical children or 'problem learners' in special in- thereby setting them apart from their peers and home community. In the atypical child is usually educated in a special day school or boarding segregated from i his peers. There are ten official categories for classing special education including speech defective and educationally sub-normal. Special schools operate to serve children in each particular category. Dr. Perkins says Denmark and Sweden are extremely advanced in their approach to educating the atypical child. both countries there is a strong social and political commitment to the pursuit of programs for the aged and the says the education professor. commitment is readily evident in the money spent by the government on facilities and teacher education.

Dr. Perkins believes education programs should attempt a more integrated approach to special modelled on the methods used in Sweden where special education clinics are located in each to give remedial treatment in co-ordination with the regular program. This approach enables some handicapped children to study in regular classes wherever for at least part of the time. However. Dr. Perkins admits the integrated approach is not the panacea for all special education problems There are some cases where a handicapped or atypical child just cannot be fitted into the regular educational system Forcing such integration would damage the child and disrupt other students' learning process. solution for Canada involves assigning a higher priority to special supported by an additional investment of money.
