ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues concerning the non-involvement of curriculum consultants, specialists and coordinators in curriculum planning for special education programs. It emphasizes that in most cases special education teachers are left with the responsibility for making curriculum decisions and more often teachers are not prepared to do a job which should be handled by a curriculum specialist. It suggests that the special educator should ask assistance in order to involve the curriculum specialist from his district. The involvement of specialists in research and in teacher training dealing with handicapped children is needed. Some changes that may be put in order if the special education teacher is freed of the responsibility of curriculum development and just be allowed to concentrate on the teaching process are presented.
