Orthopedically Handicapped Children in Ohio Public Schools.
Naples, Victor J.; Todd, Joseph H.
The historical development of programs for orthopedically handicapped children, class units and hospital classes approved during 1967-68, and the number of therapy units established are presented. Tables give data on program population: enrollment for years 1962-68, percent of handicaps enrolled, and IQ distributions. Aspects of occupational therapy described are self help skills, communication problems, muscle strength, coordination, social and emotional development, and special equipment; aspects of physical therapy are physical evaluation, alleviation of pain, range of motion, strength, coordination, functional training, and special equipment. The team approach, the administration and organization of a program, educational needs, and home and telephone instruction services are discussed. Appendixes give a glossary of diagnostic terms, standards for special education units, for transportation, and for boarding homes, and bibliographies on learning disorders, cerebral palsy, and muscular dystrophy.
