Handicapped Teens

Helping the Handicapped Teenager Mature
Ayrault
1971

When this book was published, handicapped students were invisible to mainstream students. Student that were different, were routinely shuffled into “special ed” regardless of ability or need. When I graduated college in 1982, mainstreaming students was a new concept. Before I graduated with a degree in education, a course was quickly thrown together for students discussing this concept. It was eye opening for me. Very few distinctions were made in a child’s ability. Regardless of physical or mental capabilities, everyone was lumped together under an umbrella of special ed and were virtually invisible.
