Studies in the Socialization of the Severely and Profoundly Retarded.
Olechnowicz, Hanna, Ed.
Intended for teachers of severely and profoundly retarded children, the book presents principles of management and education used at a special day care center in Warsaw, Poland. It is stressed that the educational goal is to give the retarded child a chance to develop personally and to play a positive social role in the home and family structure with emphasis on socialization skills. Individual chapters focus on the following topics: guidelines for educational work in the day center, pupil characteristics, an individual therapeutic approach, teaching purposeful motor behavior (including socialization through rhythmics), education for socially oriented behavior, and developing verbal communication. Case studies, photographs, and actual dialogue are used to illustrate main points. (DB)
