The document presents a series of 14 scripts focusing on families with disabled children, written in English for radio broadcast in translation to rural village areas in Pakistan. Intended to educate the public concerning disabilities and how families can help their handicapped children participate as fully as possible in community life, the format typically consists of an informal conversation between a rehabilitation counselor and parents, village leader, school headmaster, or disabled adult. Script titles are as follows: (1) "One in Ten Is Disabled," (2) "The Mentally Retarded Child," (3) "People Who Have Fits," (4) "Physically Disabled Child (Following Polio)," (5) "The Blind Child," (6) "Blind Young Men," (7) "The Deaf Child: Diagnosis and General," (8) "Deaf Child (Speech Development)," (9) "Program for the Mentally Retarded Child," (10) "Children with Cerebral Palsy," (11) "Speech Problems and Behavior Difficulties," (12) "Cause and Prevention of Disabilities," (13) "Going to School," and (14) "Round Up" (a summary of the concepts and information presented in previous broadcasts). Brief appendices present notes on script adaptation and presentation, as well as a vignette of the role of the rehabilitation specialist. (JW)
