Integrating the Handicapped Child: Report of a Research and Demonstration Program

By Douglas Holmes

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1966

This report looks at an evaluation of a program involving the integration of orthopedically handicapped children into playgroups of non-handicapped children. The report begins by defining the meaning of the word 'group' in order to delineate the ingredients of group functioning to better identify true group integration. The author notes important discoveries concerning the experience, such as the importance of the nature of group placement and the degree to which the handicap was visible and the relative interpersonal aggressiveness or withdrawal of the child in the group placement. The piece concludes by summarizing important factors to be considered about the study as well as recommendations for future study.
