Children with disabilities--Home care--Kentucky--Louisville


Eighty-four children have been enrolled in Home Instruction given by the Louisville Public Schools, during the past five years, 1939-1940 to 1943-1944, inclusive. Home Instruction is given only to those children who cannot attend school, due to various physical handicaps. The writer feels that it will be profitable to examine the data collected concerning the eighty-four pupils, not only for the guidance of those intimately concerned with the Louisville program, but also for the information of similar workers in other cities and of the large numbers of lay people whose chief interest is due to their feeling that "the physically handicapped child is as such entitled to a public school education as is the normal child."
