Some guidelines and recommendations for improving teacher education in order to meet the needs of severely disabled learners are presented. The suggestions include improving professional training for teachers, psychologists, supervisors, and counselors at all levels. Training should include the study of dyslexia and the preparation of a pilot report as material for workshops, institutes, and in-service training. It is suggested that a national conference of an interdisciplinary nature be held to consider recommendations for further research. Finally, the awarding of grants to school systems and training Institutions is recommended to implement further study and specialized training.
