In Celebrating 100 Years of Special Education in Victoria 1913–2013, Tony Thomas examines many aspects of Victorian special education from its beginnings in schools attached to existing homes for ‘neglected’ children to the present day’s diverse resources for students with disabilities and impairments. He discusses the legislative framework, the role of the Education Department, the growth of specialist schools and other educational settings, the development of curriculum, the training of teachers, and the allied professional associations.
Included are the individual stories of the 150 Victorian government specialist schools that have been established over the time period.
