Description:
In recent years, considerable concern has been expressed by parents, teachers and practitioners in the fields of training and employment, at the diminishing number of school-Ieavers with a mild mental handicap who are gaining access to the current labour market. The impact of· the economic recession and the technological revolution are some of the reasons put forward for this downward trend. A special effort by all concerned is necessary if this trend is to be reversed. I am very pleased to have acted as Chairman of the Committee which was formed to examine the situation and produce this report. The interest and co-operation we received from the relevant organisations and agencies is most appreciated and is encouraging for the future job prospects of the school-Ieaver with a mild mental handicap. I am confident that this report will stimulate much discussion and hopeful that many of the recommendations will be implemented as a matter of urgency .
