The writer became interested in the problem of the education of physically handicapped children in the Waco, Texas School System some years ago. Observing the neglect of this group, she decided to make a study of ways in which they can best be educated in regular schools where no special provisions are made for them.

It has been recognized that the schools alone cannot solve the problem of social maladjustment of handicapped children because the situation is complicated by certain economic conditions and by the personality development of the handicapped child. Other agencies should share the responsibility with the school or take it up when the school lays it down. A well-planned coordinated program in which various agencies help to contribute to this much-neglected group is a definite means of meeting their needs in a desirable way. What the school should do is suggested, directly or indirectly, in connection with the presentation of facts of this study. it is hoped that in the light of these facts, many school systems will find it possible to make further studies of local situations, We have come to realize that more can be done and must be done in the interests of this neglected group if they are to be helped in finding their rightful places in the society in which they live.
