§ Miss Quennell
asked the Minister of Education how many specialists there are in the teaching of educationally subnormal children.
§ Sir E. Boyle
A total of 1,454 teachers have attended or are attending one year supplementary or special advanced courses in the teaching of handicapped pupils—other than blind, deaf or partially hearing. Some of these teachers have since undertaken other work or left the profession. There are also shorter courses organised by the Ministry and by Institutes of Education and local education authorities, but the number of teachers who have attended these is not known.
