A World of Exceptional Children.
Conroy, Elizabeth H.; And Others
This fifth chapter in "Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World" contains four journal articles which focus on exceptional children and helping elementary school counselors build a supportive learning environment for exceptional children. "Primary Prevention for Gifted Students: A Parent Education Group" by Elizabeth Conroy describes a counseling group for parents of exceptional children. "Parent Counseling in Special Education: Case Description of a Novel Approach" by Charles Humes explains the conceptualization and evolution of a parent facilitation program for parents of special education students in one school district. "A Program for Training Teachers as Counselors of Parents of Children with Disabilities" by Judy Berry presents the basic components of an in-service training program that can be used by counselors to train teachers to work more effectively with parents through integration of counseling theory and special education practice. "Books Can Break Attitudinal Barriers Toward the Handicapped" by Carolyn Bauer discusses the use of books to help children become increasingly sensitive to the needs of handicapped students. Practical suggestions are given for helpful books in such areas as visual handicaps, speech handicaps, learning disabilities, auditory impairments, intellectual handicaps, and orthopedic impairments. The chapter concludes with a set of issues for elementary school counselors to consider about a world of exceptional children. (NB)
