POWERS, MARGARET H.; AND OTHERS
A STATEMENT OF POLICY AND A DEFINITION OF THE FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBLITIES IN THE SPECIAL SCHOOLS IS PRESENTED. THE GOALS OF THE SERVICES ARE TO INSURE THAT EACH CHILD SHALL MAKE CONSISTENT AND CONTINUOUS PROGRESS TOWARD HIS OPTIMAL HEALTH STATUS AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE SAFETY, PROTECTION, AND DAILY NEEDS OF THESE CHILDREN. THE IMPORTANCE OF A CLOSE WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BUREAU OF CHILD STUDY AND THE BUREAU OF MEDICAL AND SCHOOL SERVICES IS NOTED. PLACEMENT IN A SPECIAL SCHOOL IS HIGHLY SELECTIVE AND IS ONLY MADE WHEN MEDICAL REPORTS SHOW THAT THE CHILD'S SPECIAL NEEDS CANNOT BE ADEQUATELY MET IN A REGULAR SCHOOL. THIS PLACEMENT CONTINUES ONLY AS LONG AS HIS PHYSICAL CONDITION NECESSITATES THIS CARE. FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PHYSICAL THERAPIST AND THE TEACHER-NURSE ARE DISCUSSED. A LIST OF SPECIAL FORMS USED IN THE SPECIAL SCHOOLS IS INCLUDED.
