ABSTRACT
The article discusses the factors to consider in developing curriculum for the educable mentally retarded children. Curriculum for the retarded should be meaningful. It should enable the pupils to apply what they have learned. To assure success in learning experiences, teachers must understand the basic curriculum at all age levels. The administration and faculty must agree on a plan for curriculum development that will address the changing needs of the children. Curriculum development should appear in the form of an inverted pyramid. And expansion of each level of the pyramid should be directly related to the material that has been taught at preceding levels.
