The visiting teacher's role as a special service to the public schools is a diverting subject for study. It leads its students to consider one phase, then another, to find one clear fact only to discover that the new obliterates the old and that much confusion follows. However, one point of interest which seems to have persisted since the early beginning of the program is the study of the relationship of the visiting teacher and the classroom teacher in the total growth and development of the child.

The Problem of the Visiting Teacher Services and Its Scope. The major purpose of this study is: (1) to determine internal changes in the organization and administrative practices in visiting teacher services as revealed in the literature from 1906 to 1947 and to point out hewer trends in the Texas Program for Visiting Teachers, (2) to clarify the objectives of the program, and to cite evidence of their flexibilities, (3) to show implications for further expansion in the field of visiting teacher services.
