Pritchett, Beverly; Baker, Adrian J.
This annotated bibliography is derived from the ERIC system and includes citations on the "exceptional" - - a wide range of people capable of benefiting from special programs. Current trends (data search from November 1966 through May 1978) are examined, together with five main implications for counselors: (1) the need to establish a relationship with the family of the exceptional person; (2) judicious use of tests and evaluations; (3) the development of skills in teacher consultation techniques; (4) the development of skills in helping handicapped and non-handicapped students relate to each other; and (5) maintenance of an awareness of current research findings. The literature cited addresses all aspects of the life and well-being of the exceptional person, from schooling and employment to leisure activities and community involvement. (Author/LP)
