Section II presents information about specific disabilities, including autism, epilepsy, hearing handicaps, learning disabilities, mental retardation, and physical handicaps. Specific topics of interest featured in the third section include attitudes, behavior modification, genetics and genetic counseling, prevention, and sexuality and sex education.
