Special Education and Programs for Disadvantaged Children and Youth.
Tannenbaum, Abraham J. Ed.
Nine conference papers consider the application of knowledge and methods known to special education to the instruction of disadvantaged children. Edmund W. Gordon views the disadvantaged population; Frank B. Wilderson discusses behavior disorders in children from deprived backgrounds; Harriet Green Kopp describes problems of perception and cognition among the disadvantaged; and James J. Gallagher treats the disadvantaged gifted. Also presented are the contributions of special education programs, for the following groups, to the instruction of the disadvantaged: children with learning disabilities, by Norris G. Haring and Patricia Nolen; the mentally retarded, by Wayne L. Sengstock; children with orthopedic handicaps or health impairment, by Dorothy B. Carr; and the visually handicapped by Samuel C. Ashcroft. In addition, Mamie J. Jones assesses the contributions of speech therapy. (JD)
