chapter  9
Integration of the maladjusted
Pages 7

The integration of handicapped with normal children can take place in varying degrees and in a variety of ways, including: individual integration with normal children in their ordinary schools; by placing units for handicapped children in ordinary schools. Then, by building special schools on the same sites as ordinary schools and sharing the facilities between those schools; and by pupils from special schools undertaking part of their studies in ordinary schools or in colleges of further education. Several of the special schools have arrangements whereby their pupils spend part of each week in a neighbouring school and three of these schools for the educationally sub-normal children arrange for their 16-year-olds to take some lessons each week in colleges of further education. Most of the units are for partially hearing children and by the time they reach secondary school age the children in those units are usually integrated into the normal schools for a proportion of their work.
