Special Education Facilities: Schools and Playgrounds for Trainable Mentally Handicapped Children.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto. School Planning and Building Research Section.
Intended to assist school boards in planning educational facilities for trainable mentally retarded children, the booklet contains designs illustrating both the general structure and specific room arrangements for various sizes of school and various age groups. The designs show small, self-contained schools where mobility in the grouping of classes and flexibility in the arrangement of training facilities can be achieved easily. In addition to building layout and classroom arrangement, suggestions are made concerning bathrooms, playroom, kitchen, craft room, principal's office, and staff and health room. Discussion of the playground area covers both the planning of outdoor areas and specific types of recommended playground equipment. (KW)
