The study focuses on appropriate guidelines to develop special programs to increase and improve the educational opportunities for these young people. Conducted in two phases, the first part deals with the educable mentally retarded; the second phase concentrates on the culturally deprived. Data were obtained through interviews, consultations, visits to exemplary programs, conferences, presentations, and literature reviews. Findings and recommendations in each phase of the original study are presented in this abstract, which has been written to be used as a working manual. (MU)
