Kangaroo Kapers or How to Jump into Library Services for the Handicapped.
Ruark, Ardis; Melby, Carole
This guide to educational and library resources for handicapped individuals cites agencies, organizations, and bibliographies of children's and adult/professional books in separate sections for the aurally, visually, and mentally handicapped, and in a general section for other handicapping conditions. Guidelines for volunteers include suggested qualifications and responsibilities, as well as a sample registration form and task schedule. Detailed information on access for the handicapped is provided in a 20-page pamphlet, "Elimination of Architectural Barriers," and two library media center accessibility checklists. Other features include a bibliography on sign language and interpreting, storytelling tips to use with the mentally handicapped, suggestions for the use of puppets and learning wheels, and guidelines for representing exceptional persons in educational materials.
