Gallagher, James J.
The testimony of James J. Gallagher, Associate Commissioner for Education of the Handicapped, in favor of the Handicapped Children's Early Education Assistance Act (H.R. 17829) is presented. The advantages of preschool education for the handicapped and recommendations for model preschool programs gathered from the National Advisory Committee on Handicapped Children and from seven regional conferences, which included 700 educational professionals from the 50 states, are mentioned. Lack of existing facilities, the scarcity of preschool programs planned, and the incidence of handicapped children requiring help are described; and essential elements in a total program of research, development, demonstration, training, and implementation are indicated.
