HC Deb 16 November 1982 vol 32 c116W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps are being taken to educate children toward a clearer understanding of the problems, needs and aspirations of disabled people; what spending has been approved for this purpose; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Boyson

One of the outcomes of the trend towards greater integration of disabled children in ordinary schools is likely to be a closer understanding of their problems, needs, aspirations and capacity to achieve. It is important that local education authorities and schools bear in mind the need to encourage this understanding in their policies for the school curriculum.
