Professional Preparation for School Librarians: The Exceptional Child and the Library.
Baskin, Barbara; Harris, Karen
The current trend in special education is towards a policy of rapid integration of mildly or moderately disabled children into the regular classroom. The movement towards multi-age grouping, open classrooms, and other varieties of mixed grouping will call for drastic changes in the librarian's repertoire due to the extended heterogeneity of user groups. Accordingly, Louisiana State University in New Orleans has expanded its curriculum in library science by developing a course on library science for the exceptional child. This course explores problems such as the nature of exceptionality and the implications for learning, objectives of the program, physical plant considerations, professional literature, and integrating function.
