Specialists from ten countries discuss trends in training and professional development for teachers of students with special needs, concluding that such training should be part of every teacher's initial and continuing training. Developed from contributions to a July 1993 symposium in Manchester, England, 17 papers demonstrate that while there signs of a growing convergence in Europe at the level of principles and philosophy, a great diversity remains in policies, practice, and provision. Among the topics are best-practices criteria in inclusive education as a basis of teacher education, the in-service training needs of primary teachers for integration in Spain, a report on a TEMPUS project for east-west cooperation for pupils with SEN, the training needs of teachers working with emotionally disturbed children, and mathematical learning as a neglected theme in special education. Six country reports are also included. Distributed in the US by Books International. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
