We Serve the Exceptional Child: Schools, Classes, Programs and Services for Children with Special Physical and Educational Needs.
Rutgard, June G., Ed.
The publication describes the special education programs and services for exceptional children in the Los Angeles City Schools. Content is organized under the three following major sections: physically exceptional pupils (discussing the deaf and hard of hearing, orthopedically handicapped and other health impaired, speech handicapped, and visually handicapped), mentally retarded and educationally handicapped pupils (discussing the trainable mentally retarded, development centers for handicapped minors, and the educationally handicapped, i.e., children with learning and/or behavior disorders), and other services. The review of services deals with auxiliary services provided for exceptional children, which consist of student rehabilitation and occupational training, remedial physical education, driver training, psychological services, and specially funded programs. Chapters on the various areas of exceptionality contain definitions pertaining to the education of children with each exceptionality, eligibility and placement, current programs, and program objectives. Maps indicating the locations of special facilities and programs are also included. (KW)
