Screening and Social Integration of Handicapped Children.
International Children's Centre, Paris (France).
Four documents, intended for specific audiences, touch on screening and social integration of handicapped children. The first, for policy makers, reviews classification categories and describes early detection devices and prevention measures. Policy implications of integration within families, communities, and schools are considered. The second document, intended for nurses, midwives, social workers, teachers, and parents, defines disability conditions and provides a simple checklist for screening. Social integration and mainstreaming provisions are discussed. The third document, for academic level workers and professionals, covers the role of screening in medical practice, primary prevention, and screening in early childhood. Support needed by families in order to take advantage of social integration is discussed. The final document covers the subjects of screening and social integration for mass media specialists. (CL)
