Most counselors agree that all children could benefit from guidance during the elementary grades in school. Guidance for the gifted adolescent often comes too late to change his study habits or his educational plans; and, early recognition of and help for children with physical, social, and emotional difficulties might prevent delinquency, early dropout from school, and later unemployment as teenagers. Elementary school children of average ability also benefit from an effective guidance program. This bulletin outlines some current educational practices that may help elementary school teachers and administrators develop programs of guidance. It describes certain guidance features which are common to a selected number of elementary school programs and suggests new approaches for further research. (Contains 22 footnotes.)
