Two surveys were undertaken for us by the Department of Education and Science: one of the views of teachers in special and ordinary schools on various aspects of provision for children with special educational needs; and the other of the cost per place in special schools and special classes and units in nine local education authorities.Details of some of these projects are given in Appendices 5-8.We should like to express our thanks to those who undertook research projects for us, as well as to those parents, young people, professionals in different services and others who were the source of their information. In the course of our work we made many visits, individually or in groups, to a wide range of institutions in England, Scotland and Wales.The places visited are too numerous to list but they included nursery schools and special nursery units, ordinary schools, maintained and non-maintained special schools, independent schools catering wholly or mainly for handicapped pupils, hospitals, assessment centres, colleges of further education, colleges of education and departments of education in polytechnics.On a very small number of issues, indicated in the text, there was difference of opinion among us. On all our main conclusions and recommendations we were in complete agreement.
