There are many handicapped Negro children in the South Park School District of Beaumont, Texas. These students should have special training facilities, specialized teaching, and teachers who are adequately trained to cope with their special problems. Some of these children cannot be taught along with other children generally because of their unique needs. They require specific diagnostic instruments to ascertain properly the breadth, depth, and classification of their needs.

The problem of this research is to assemble reliable data concerning the needs of the handicapped Negro children in the South Park School District, Beaumont, Texas and to propose a program of instruction for them.

To the readers of this research it is to encourage and facilitate the formulation of suitable remedial and educational programs for the handicapped child and to show the need for others to qualify for the teaching of these children so that the demand for instructors in this field may be met.

This problem is limited to the exceptional Negro children between the ages of six and seventeen in the South Park School District of Beaumont, Texas. It includes the types of handicaps, teacher qualifications, and the provisions offered by the state in organizing classes of special education.
