Designing Remedial Education

Education meets psychiatry


Eve Mandre

Education and psychiatry meet as a result of a teacher broadening her scope to encompass adult psychiatry.

Eve Mandre sheds light on the silent knowledge inherent in remedial education by highlighting the individual factors involved and putting words to them. Systematic observation is the basis of all individualized education and the ability to make good observations is one of the teacher's most important tools. It is through observation that the educator is able to determine the learning difficulties that are in need of remedial measures.

In this thesis, Eve systematizes her own observations and educational methods based on many years' experience in the field. Numerous examples show how to handle the learning difficulties in adults with autism and other neuropsychiatric disorders.

The author hopes that this approach to educational design will be useful in traditional education as well as in psychiatric care, where it can be a complement to other types of therapy.
