Description:
I. In May, 1977, Mr. John Bruton, T.D., then Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Education, asked us "to review the provision made for the education of the physically handicapped and to make appropriate recommendations having regard to the need 10 make the best possible use of the resources available". 2. We held in all 16 meetings, most of which occupied a whole day. Some of our members visited schools attended hy physically handicapped pupils in order to discuss with the school authorities and teachers specific issues which had arisen in the course of our meetings and which we required to have clarified. We received oral evidence from representatives of a number of organisations which are particulary concerned with the welfare of physically handicapped people. The names of the schools visited and of persons who gave oral evidence, submitted memoranda or letters or assisted us in any way are given in Appendix 11. In addition some members of the Committee visited the United Kingdom and France to study facilities for the physically handicapped in those countries. With the co-operation of the Departments of Education and Health, the Regional Health Boards and the National Haemophilia Service Committee we carried out a number of detailed enquiries regarding physically handicapped children. The results of these enquiries are given in the report. Circumstances outside our control delayed these investigations and the preparation of our report.
