This publication is one of a series resulting from the broad study, "Qualification and Preparation of Teachers of Exceptional Children," which since 1952 has been one of the major projects of the Office of Education. The participation of more than 2,000 persons concerned with handicapped and gifted children is an example of cooperative action among private organizations, school systems, colleges and universities, and the staff of the Office of Education. Reported here is that part of the information from the broad study which has particular bearing on the qualification and preparation of speech correction teachers. Opinions of speech correctionists and teachers of children who are hard of hearing were collected separately, but with the current trend towards combining the fields of speech and hearing, the forthcoming report, "Teachers of Children Who Are Hard of Hearing," may also be of value in this area. It is hoped that this publication will prove useful to speech correction teachers in their professional development, to supervisors and administrators of speech correction programs, to standard-setting agencies, and to colleges and universities offering preparation for such teachers. Further, it is hoped that this report will stimulate additional discussion and research on the part of those interested in improving instruction for the Nation's children who have speech defects. Appended are: (1) The Office of Education Study, Qualification and Preparation of Teachers of Exceptional Children; (2) Information about the 120 Speech Correctionists Who Supplied the Data for This Study; (3) Statistical Procedures and Results; and (4) Excerpts from Inquiry Forms. (Contains 9 tables and 8 footnotes.) [This paper was written in collaboration with Hildred Gross, Elizabeth MacLearie, Letitia Raubicheck, and Berneice Rutherford.
