Public interest in the field of the retarded child has grown rapidly. One of the more striking aspects of this movement has been the development of interest in the training and education of the severely retarded group of children. This annotated bibliography of more than 300 titles is itself evidence of the pace at which this area has expanded. The publication is one of the series of studies by the Section on Exceptional Children and Youth on the education of mentally retarded. It is a bibliographical review of the literature on the education and training of the severely retarded, who are currently of deep concern to the schools and to communities. The bibliography covers primarily the education of the middle range, or severely retarded child, up to June 1, 1958. While it does not claim to be exhaustive it is believed that it covers fairly completely the published materials on this subject--experimental, theoretical, and practical. All the reports included represent serious attempts to throw light on this long neglected problem, although some of the materials are relevant by implication. (Contains 1 footnote.)
