Exceptional Children in a Modern Society. Second Edition.
Love, Harold D.
This attempt to cover the entire spectrum of exceptionalities in children aims at both graduate and undergraduate students. Discussed are a background of identification techniques for exceptionalities and the screening and education of the gifted child. Included are sections dealing with the classifications, history, types, education, and future possibilities of the following handicaps: the mentally retarded, the visually impaired, those with speech problems, the aurally impaired, the orthopedically and health impaired, the emotionally disturbed, and those with brain dysfunction. Attention is also given to parent attitudes toward their handicapped children and plans for special education. Bibliographies follow each chapter. (JM)
