THE GALENA PARK PLAN FOR MEETING THE NEEDS OF THE PUPIL IN DIFFICULTY, 1961-1962.
MCGAHAN, R.E.
PROVISIONS ARE MADE UNDER TEXAS'S STATE LAW FOR MEETING THE VARIOUS NEEDS OF THE MENTALLY RETARDED, THE ORTHOPEDICALLY HANDICAPPED, THE HOME-BOUND, AND THE ORAL-AURAL, OR VISUAL-HANDICAPPED. THE GENERAL AIM OF THE GALENA PARK SCHOOLS IS TO PREPARE THE PUPIL PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, SOCIALLY, AND MORALLY TO TAKE HIS PLACE IN AN EVER-CHANGING, COMPLEX SOCIETY. A CHILD WHO IS EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTY IN ANY OF THESE AREAS IS ASSISTED BY PROPERLY TRAINED PERSONNEL, WHO ARE EQUIPPED WITH ADEQUATE FACILITIES. DISCUSSED ARE THE PROGRESS AND NEEDED EXTENSIONS OF THE PRESENT PROGRAM, AS WELL AS SEVERAL OTHER PHASES OF THE SPECIAL SERVICES DESIGNED TO GIVE AID OR ASSISTANCE TO THE EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED AND THE SLOW LEARNING CHILD. TRANSITIONAL CLASSES FOR THESE CHILDREN ARE A MAJOR PORTION OF THE PROGRAM. A MAXIMUM ENROLLMENT OF 18 PUPILS PER CLASS ALLOWS THE TEACHER TO PROVIDE SPECIAL EDUCATION TO MEET EACH CHILD'S NEEDS.
