A Boarding Home Program for Handicapped Children. A Manual.
Melcher, John W.
The manual discusses the Wisconsin boarding home program for handicapped children who live too far from special programs to commute daily. During the school week, the child lives with boarding home parents, who are paid by the Division for Handicapped Children's Services through the local school board. Explained are the child's needs (physical and emotional), and what to do in emergency situations. The relationships between the natural and boarding home parents, and between the latter and the county social services agency, are briefly discussed. (KW)
