functions are envisaged keeping in mind the National Policy on Education
1986, which states (1) children with mild disabilities will be in regular
schools, (2) children with severe disabilities will be in special schools,
(3) vocationalization of education should be considered in school level, (4)
teacher training programmes should be re-oriented to include children with
special needs and (5) voluntary efforts must be encouraged. This being the
case, the above programme will prepare teacher who can work effectively as
resource room teachers in regular school and will have the competencies to
teach children with mild disabilities.
the experience shows that the regular schools have been reluctant in
starting resource rooms because of lack of trained manpower. This may also
help in having a wider scope of employment of the special education teacher
in the regular educational setting to act as a resource teacher. The course
content includes organization and administration skills, thus preparing them
to be in the position of In charge of special schools. The curriculum also
covers pre-vocational areas and involvement in community, thus preparing the
teacher to plan for total educational programming for persons with mental
retardation in the school going age.
