The Exceptional Child in the School Library: Response and Strategy.
Baskin, Barbara; Harris, Karen
When children are visually handicapped to the point that they cannot read, some other form of information carrier, such as braille books, sound recordings, models, and realia, must be used. For deaf children, one must provide a variety of visual information on transparencies and captioned filmstrips. Retarded children need special materials which are in logical sequence, have repetitive characteristics, and have no distracting elements. Multimedia materials may provide helpful reinforcement. Disturbed children may be helped by individualized instruction. The librarian can be a tremendous help to these children, and also to physically handicapped children, by choosing appropriate equipment and materials and by leading handicapped children toward materials that will help them to understand themselves, their limitations, and their potential. The author suggests some book titles, both for handicapped children and for adults concerned with them. (LS)
