Public School Classes for Crippled Children. Bulletin, 1918, No. 10
Solenberger, Edith Reeves
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Although in the United States there are many thousands of crippled children, probably as many as there are of deaf and blind, little attention has been given them as a class. While special provision for the deaf and blind children is made in all States and for feeble-minded and incorrigible children in most of the States, few States make any special provision for the care and education of crippled children. And in only half a dozen cities are there separate schools or classes for them, and in the schools of most cities, towns and rural districts not even suitable seats and desks are provided for them. It is therefore all the more important that what has been done by the public schools of few cities that have given the most attention to this matter be known. This bulletin provides information on this topic. Appended are: (1) Suggestions to teachers in small cities and in country schools; (2) Record cards used in New York; and (3) Cost of special classes in Chicago and Cleveland. (Contains 3 plates.)
