Family, Bureaucracy, and the "Special Child"
Berger, Brigitte
Public Interest, 40, 96-108, Sum 75
Suggests that the great increase in recent years in the number of "special children" is due to a change in the criteria used to label a child as having a "learning disability" and argues that a "special child's" best chances for successful therapy are in an out-patient situation in which there is close coordination with the home.
