This child, with parental permission, Is referred to the school psychological examiner who administers a battery of tests and makes a recommendation as to the kind of program that .will meet individual needs.

They will develop these skills at a slower rate than others and generally will need a great amount of individual attention. ' '' A good program of life adjustment is very important f o r many of the children. They car be helped to develop a s e l f image that is good and in keeping with their ability. Teachers strive to instill values of good relations with others, good man- demillness and reliability Those habits ami practices at tract to them, people who cnn and will he!p them. In other words, If they cnn be taught to project a deslrnblo Image to jthers their chances ot becoming useful citizens Is enhanced, Some children come to us .with these altitudes pretty well do velopcd, others do not. BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION Behavior modification in the area of physical activity Is vcr; necessary tor some of these students. Some are over active and have no attention span The teacher trys to corrcc these characteristics and mcdl cal, dental and psychologlca aid |s sought by the school I there Is a need.
