The San Mateo County Pilot Study of Neurologically Handicapped Children.
Anderson, William W.; And Others
Of 27 children considered educationally handicapped (EH) who were screened by a psychological-medical team, 24 were eligible for a special pilot class for neurologically handicapped (brain damaged) children. Eight children were placed in the special class and made consistently greater gains in IQ scores, academic skills, and general behavior than the 14 remaining in regular classrooms. The multi-author report of the program provides a summary and background information, results, and a neurological appraisal of the hyperkinetic child. Also described are suggested environment, basic philosophy, and a guide for screening applicants for special programs and classes for EH children. References, illustrations, and forms are included.
