ABSTRACT
The article discusses the two sections of the Education Professions Development Act of 1967 which are of interest to special education teachers. The Act is aimed at meeting the increasing manpower needs of education and these sections cover training programs and fellowships. Eighty-five percent of the funds for the training and fellowship sections will be allocated to eleven high priority educational programs. One of these programs is training teachers for the handicapped in regular classrooms which is designed to complement and support the training programs provided by the U.S. Bureau of Education for the Handicapped. The remaining fifteen percent of the fund will be allocated for projects which will directly benefit handicapped children.
