Lord James was welcoming the publication of the road safety pack, 'Paving The Way', produced by the Scottish Road Safety Campaign (SRSC), launched today.
He said: 'This pack is an excellent new resource for those teaching children and adults with special needs. It aims to increase each student's understanding of the road environment and to encourage the independent and safe mobility of those students for whom it is possible.
'It was developed by the SRSC with assistance by educational officers, carers, a clinical psychologist and road safety officers in Scotland.
'I am sure that teachers and students alike will find this pack very helpful in integrating those with learning difficulties fully into the community.'
- Copies of the pack, 'Paving the Way' and further details of the initiative can be obtained from Diane Sudlow, SRSC, on 0131-444 2230.
