The survey was performed to 159 teachers in the special schools and special classrooms. The result of this study showed that teachers had difficulties in teaching subject matters because of low availability of textbook as a core of the curriculum and few teaching materials for each student's level of ability, and that although there were somewhat difference in every subject matter, the amount and the difficulty level of teaching contents were in general appropriate to them. The requisite conditions for individualized lesson were in turn found to be the reduction of students, a qualified teaching-learning assisted materials, and provision of various textbooks suited for the students' abilities. The special school teachers were conscious of the necessity to restructure the curriculum, and thus managed the lesson with the restructured curriculum suited for the characteristics of schools and students.
