Exceptional Children in Head Start: Characteristics of Preschool Handicapped Children.
This paper is one of a series of documents being issued by the Head Start Regional Resource and Training Center in response to a need to develop a variety of materials for use in local Head Start programs. The term "handicapped preschool child" is defined, and a list of handicapped conditions and the special needs they may generate is presented. For purposes of identification and discussion, the following categories are considered: auditorially-handicapped children, chronically-ill children, emotionally-disturbed children, mentally retarded children, orthopedically-handicapped children, speech-impaired children, visually-handicapped children, and multiple-handicapped children. Suggested resources for aid and information are given for each category. (CS)
