Thesaurus for Exceptional Children. Third Edition.
Woodworth, Karen L.; Breuer, Carol V.
The thesaurus is explained to be a distillation of the more comprehensive Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors used by the Educational Resources Information Center Clearinghouses, and contains approximately 1,500 indexing terms called descriptors selected from the ERIC Thesaurus on the basis of particular need to the Clearinghouse on Exceptional Children. Descriptors selected for inclusion are those which have been found to be most applicable and necessary for indexing professional literature in the field of exceptional child education. Scope notes follow a majority of the descriptors and are designed to define the descriptor as it is used in relation to exceptional child education or for indexing purposes. Extensive cross referencing among related descriptors is provided to assist users in finding the most appropriate descriptors for their purposes. A general term is usually followed by cross references to more specific terms representing subcategories of the general term and to any other related descriptors. (CB)
