The book reports on a study of 65 handicapped adults working in special education programs and includes case studies. Positions occupied by these handicapped adults include aides, teachers, administrators, speech therapists, psychologists, and guidance counselors; their handicaps include blindness, cerebral palsy, deafness, and dwarfism. The advantages to hiring such people to work in special education are pointed out, and the ways they overcome obstacles in their work are illustrated. (DLS)
