Behrmann, E.H., Ed.; Moll, M. Ann Delores, Ed.
A statement of philosophical concepts and statistical data opens this guide to Catholic facilities for exceptional children in the United States. Special facilities and programs with an educational or training concept are listed, by state, for each of the following exceptionalities: the aurally handicapped, the emotionally and/or socially maladjusted, the mentally retarded, the orthopedically handicapped, the visually handicapped (both blind and partially sighted), and the multiply handicapped. Also listed, again by state, are programs in part-time religious instruction, child guidance clinics or centers, hospitals offering specialized services, colleges and universities with teacher training programs in various areas of exceptionality (non-Catholic institutions are included), and orders admitting handicapped persons to the religious life. In addition, state training schools, hospitals, and institutions are listed which serve the aurally, emotionally, mentally, orthopedically, and visually handicapped. Every entry in the guide includes descriptive information. An appendix cites other agencies, publications, and services. (JD)
