Guidance for the Exceptional Child

by F. H. Finch & Velma Yowell - 1950

The term "guidance" is used in this chapter to refer to all those services rendered to the individual for the purpose of helping him develop the ability to (a) establish suitable goals for himself and (b) discover and organize the means by which these goals can be reached. More simply, guidance may be looked upon as services provided to help the individual develop the ability to make suitable plans for his own activities. While the various aspects of life are, in a sense, inseparable and can by no means be segregated into clearly independent categories, one may find it convenient to apply to certain phases of an individual's activity such descriptive terms as vocational, educational, recreational, civic, and social.
