A Pilot Project in Educating Handicapped Children

Record #:
The past seven years have brought about important changes in public attitudes toward educational opportunities for handicapped children. Until seven years ago, handicapped children had virtually no access to education. In response to growing need, the Handicapped Children's Early Assistance Act was passed in 1968, implementing pilot projects. One of these first was located in North Carolina; the Chapel Hill Training-Outreach Project developed teaching methods that have proved successful with a diversity of handicapped children.
