Basic Facts and Principles Underlying Special Education


by The Yearbook Committee — 1950

In every school system there are pupils who, because they deviate markedly from the so-called "normal" child, require special skills and services on the part of teachers and other school personnel. These children cannot adjust to the school program without such special services. Some of them are physically handicapped—blind, deaf, epileptic, or crippled. Some differ mentally to a significant degree, being either seriously retarded in intellectual development or exceptionally gifted. Some are emotionally disturbed or are unable to make a proper social adjustment in school and community; among these are children with serious behavior problems which may result in a disturbed personality or in delinquency.
