Subjects in an experimental group received a 30-minute instructional presentation consisting of a filmstrip about a handicapped child, descriptions of spasticity and flaccidity, and role play with five orthopedic appliances. In comparison with control group subjects, experimental group members demonstrated an increased awareness of the appliances and more frequently expressed feelings of sadness. (Author/RH)
