KIRKUS REVIEW

A manual deals with the specific problems the parent of a retarded child confronts, and without sentiment determines the handling of the child in relation to the family and the world. The levels of retardation indicate whether the child is educable, trainable or totally dependent, and whether a residential school is preferable to the home. If the child is to be brought up at home, this outlines the ways in which you can help him to help himself; encourage emotional security; provide the proper play activities and equipment; teach him to speak (a particularly slow and difficult process); improve his relation with other people; and make use of whatever facilities are available through the community. A direct and practical and impersonal presentation.
