1.The stiuation of handicapped children resident in foreigen countries.
We obrained information on 64 handicapped pupils in 74 Japanese schools by the questionnaire method (89.1% replied). The main results were as follows.
1) Only 7 schools had special education staffs, but 39 schools had visiting staffs who had experience teaching handicapped children.
2) Twenty-seven of 74 schools (37.5%) had handicapped pupils.
3) Their age structure ; 3 pupils in the pre-school (4.7%), 26 in lower-grades (40.6%), 22 in upper grades (34.4%), 7 in junior high school (10.9%), and 6 others (9.4%).
4) Types of handicaps in order ; 27 mentally retarded (25.2%), language and learning disability, 12 emotional disturbances (11.2%) and 12 autism. As sensory problems, there were 8 auditory (7.5%) and 2 visual (1.9%) disorders.
2.Establishment of the developmental diagnosis system.
We prepared a personal questionnaire examining the developmental stage and learning achievement consisting of four domains (stages) ; word, number, movement and socialization. From these results, we made developmental diagnosis sheets exhibiting their profiles on teaching-function-unit (TFU) for "hearing", "understanding" etc., and on teaching-category-unit (TCU) for "speech", "distinction", "analogous" and so forth.
3.An attempt at providing an application of this educational supporting system.
We attempted to work out this educational system as follows ; We selected teaching materials in due consideration of both TFU and TCU profile. Next we sent them out to the teaching staffs in foreign countries by electrical transmissions. Actually, we mailed our personal questionnaires to foreign Japanese schools, and received 55 replies. Then 47 personal profiles were returned and requested information using this supporting system. Our problem now is to move quickly to meet the demand for information.
