further, but focused on vocational training.

3.5 SUMMARY ON SERVICES NEEDED AND RECEIVED BY DISABLED
Respondents were asked what services they had needed in the past or
present and whether they received any services irrespective of whether
they needed them or not. Health services are the services most received
and needed, and welfare and educational services are the services least
3.7.1 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION ON SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
The high rate of school attendance at primary school and the low school
attendance at high school suggests that the quality of education prevents
disabled children from reaching high school. There just are no other services
and so disabled children on the whole are "dumped" into the
mainstream schools either by their parents or the education system.
