The rapid development of special classes for middle-range, severely retarded, or trainable children has brought into sharp focus a number of relatively new instructional problems. What educational aptitudes do these children possess and what should be the objectives and procedures in teaching them? On the basis of the quantitative and experimental data and the statements of practice currently available, this publication discusses some of the factors in classroom programs for middle-range retarded children. This bulletin contains the following sections: (1) Characteristics of Severely Retarded Children (Harold M. Williams); (2) Classroom Programs (Harold M. Williams); (3) Teacher Selection and Preparation (Frances P. Connor); and (4) Some Administrative Considerations (Jennie Brewer). A bibliography is included. Individual sections contain footnotes.
