The purpose of this study is two-fold: First, to encourage the elementary teachers to make forward strides toward being prepared to help correct speech defects. Second, to stir the interest of teachers and school administrators to see to it that special teachers for speech handicapped children and other handicapped children be employed to serve the handicapped children in the elementary schools of Jasper County.

This study will be confined to the Negro children of the Elementary Schools in Jasper County during the Scholastic year of 1949-50 and one special case during the writer's experience as a Primary teacher, serving the Kirbyville Colored Elementary School before the scholastic year of 1949-50.
