First published in 1979. This report offers a working model for the teaching of language and communication to the mentally handicapped which derives from both theory and practice, and tries to build a bridge between them. It provides detailed examples of teachers putting principles into action and illustrates how teachers and children work together. The report will be of interest to all those concerned with the welfare of the handicapped child, including the parents. It provides both a working text for teachers, and a basis for critical discussion about curriculum development and content in special needs schools.
