Originally published by Harper and Row in 1972, this volume provides an overview of the major exceptionalities including physical and mental handicaps, as well as the 'gifted'. Also examines public school programs and community resources which deal with these exceptionalities. An excellent resource for those entering the field of special education and for practitioners.
