Data exchange for special needs

4th April 1997 at 01:00
Attitudes to pupils with special educational needs, and theories about how best to educate them, vary widely between cultures.

If you have ever been curious about how teachers in Italy cope with behavioural difficulties, or how autistic children are treated in Denmark, the recently formed European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education may be of interest.

The agency aims to collect and disseminate information about research, innovations and educational practice from its member countries (the 15 European Union countries, Norway and Iceland).

The agency also organises courses and seminars for in-service training.
