Specific topics covered include trainable and educable mentally handicapped, bright and gifted, visually handicapped, hearing impaired, speech handicapped, physically disabled, special health problems, emotionally disturbed, brain injured, culturally disadvantaged, socially deviant behavior, problems of bilingualism, creative behavior and creativity, and relationships of motivation, interest, and curiosity.
