Ninth Annual Distinguished Lecture Series in Special Education and Rehabilitation. Summer Session, 1970.
Williams, Eddie H., Ed.; And Others
Six papers on special education and rehabilitation are presented. In discussing games people play with programs for the educable mentally handicapped, C. E. Meyers focuses on problems of appropriate reconceptualizing programs for slow learners, resulting from court orders to cease and desist certain practices. Harry A. Grace examines management strategy and rehabilitation organization on the premise that the primary goal of rehabilitation is preparation of persons for participation in economic life. Bernard Rimland then explores future trends in treatment of mentally ill children from the vantage point that Freud's theories are outmoded and that most learning and behavior disorders result from physiological impairments. In his short presentation on team learning, Robert B. MacIntyre advocates use of special education students as tutors of both their peers and of exceptional children. Charles B. Truax discusses empathy, nonpossessive warmeth, and genuineness as effective in counseling and psychotherapy. In conclusion, Oliver P. Kolstoe reviews historical definitions of mental retardation and advocates a definition based on intellectual arrest, not equivalent to IQ scores, at some level below Piaget's level of formal thought.
