The Assimilation of Two Classes of T.M.H. Children Into a Typical Junior High School.
Smokoski, Fred; And Others
Twenty-five trainable mentally handicapped young adults were placed in two junior high schools. The curriculum included communication, basic knowledge, family living and personal hygiene, work preparation, and body usage. Among the concerns expressed by the children's parents were that the junior high youth would not accept the retarded students and that normal young adults would mistreat the handicapped. Among the problems encountered were difficulty ordering suitable materials and equipment, physical facilities in the schools, and policies and procedures regarding such things as field trips, insurance requirements and general information. After 1 year, the program was considered extremely successful. (SBH)
