John Baptist de La Salle and Special Education

This book was first published in 1988 but has been out of print for many years. It is a study of the Lasallian educational enterprises that were established by St. John Baptist de La Salle and the Brothers of the Christian Schools at St. Yon in Rouen, France. It was here that one of the first secondary school curriculums was developed, along with a facility for court-adjudicated youth (and even adults).

The book provides many early principles, guidelines, and practices associated with educating unique and special students according to the same methologies and priorities that had already been effectively implemented at the elementary school level throughout France.

The book will be especially of interest to Youth and Family Service agencies, counselors, and others who work with youth with special needs.

A Little More Information

This original work examines the elements of the Lasallian school and their application and development in the educational establishment at St. Yon, begun by De La Salle himself. This is a unique study of the challenges involved in adapting Lasallian principles to special education. It will be of special interest to those institutions that work with youth and familiy services.

An appendix lists the institutions of the Brothers of the Christian Schools that currently continue, or until recently have continued, the type of work done at St. Yon.
