Description:
The Working Party interpreted its tenth conference as including. all those children between the ages of 4 and 18 years who are at present excluded from the formal educational system because of low intelligence. It also included those moderately mentally handicapped young children who attend pre-school units attached 10 centres catering for severely and profoundly mentally handicapped children. The Working Party recognised that it is not meaningful arbitrarily to set an upper limit of 18 years of age for participation in programmes of education and training for severely and profoundly mentally handicapped persons. It will argue later in the report for the inclusion of severely and profoundly mentally handicapped adults in appropriate education and training programmes. It is felt, however, that such programmes should not be conducted in children's centres, and the deliberations which led to this report have not included discussion of education and training programmes for adults.
