Parents' Problems with Exceptional Children. Bulletin, 1932, No. 14

The White House Conference on Child Health and Protection has recently pointed out how inadequately this country is providing educational opportunities for exceptional children. One-half million gifted children, another half million retarded children, three-quarters of a million children exhibiting serious behavior problems, three hundred thousand seriously crippled children, and fourteen thousand blind constitute only a partial list of the children in this country who vary so markedly from the normal as to need special educational provisions. What these special provisions are, where they may be obtained, and how they may be supplemented, or in some cases provided, by the home program are problems which many parents are now facing. This manuscript analyzes many of these problems and offers practical suggestions for parents who are concerned about the education of their own children or interested in the greatest welfare of all children. (Contains 10 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
