Exceptional Timetables: Historic Events Affecting the Handicapped and Gifted.
Nazzaro, Jean N.
The document provides tables covering events which affected the handicapped and gifted in the United States, along with milestones that occurred in other countries, from 1800 to the present. Historical events for each year are categorized as follows: Climate of the Times (items not necessarily related to special education but included to evoke images of the sights and sounds of the day); Advocacy and Litigation (events which include court cases and supportive movements by individuals and groups, as well as the development of professional organizations); Technology, Science, Health, and Innovation (unique methods developed by individual teachers, publications that mark new trends, and major breakthroughs in testing, prosthesis, and medicine); Programs (a catchall category that includes individual program descriptions and statistical information about the number of programs in existence and the number of individuals being served); and State Policy and Federal Policy (both dealing with specific laws and practices). Preceding the tables are suggestions for using the document and following the tables is an annotated bibliography. (SBH)
