The Special School for Emotionally Disturbed Children


by Bruno Bettelheim 1948

In every large community, and even in many small ones, one finds a sizable number of delinquent children who fail to respond to the efforts of the teachers, the guided group experiences, and the special services of the regular schools. The reason is that the symptoms of their disturbances are too severe or too upsetting to other children. The regular school can- not reach the excessive truant who rarely attends classes. Delinquents who steal consistently or who seduce others into embarking on undesirable sex activities or threaten them with physical harm should not be kept in regular classes. These children are in need of special schools which provide the particular setting and services necessary for.their readjustment to community life.
