Authors: Morgan Chitiyo (Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA) 
Book Description:
The need for special education in Africa is uncontested. With extreme poverty, perennial hunger, severe malnutrition, rampant disease, conflict and frequent wars, Africa seems to possess all the ingredients that put children at risk for disability. Unfortunately, the general education curriculum is failing to meet the needs of this population. Special education is therefore, a necessity. However, special education is still quite underdeveloped in most of Africa. This book is intended to serve as a user-friendly guide and resource for everyone who is dedicated to both the education and social welfare of children with disabilities across Africa, particularly south of the Sahara. It is designed to help schoolteachers, caregivers, and families in their quest to provide the best education possible for children who are challenged by disability. The book is intended to promote the development of special education across the continent. It provides an overview of different types of mild to severe disabilities and provides a brief description of each disability from both an African and a Western perspective. (Imprint: Novinka)
