Miss Foltz
Believes In
"One must first realize
what there is to work with
when educating a mentally
retarded child and then at
tempt to develop these re
sources to their fullest ex
tent." Guided by this principle
six student teachers are work
ing with 12 students seven to
10 years old in a special Edu
cational Psychology and Mea
surement program. The stu
dents have I.Q.s ranging from
50 to 75 and are therefore
classified as educable.
Miss Flora Foltz, a visiting
instructor from Farmington,
N.M., is supervisor of the
primary group. Miss Foltz
uses the "develop what the
child has" principle in her
work as director of the pro
gram for exceptional child
ren at the Farmington school
Work In this summer's pro'
gram includes as much aca
demic study on the elemen
tary level as possible plus
exercises in personal welfare
such as health and safety.

Miss Foltz has taught hand
icapped children for eight
-. She graduated with a
B.A. degree and took an M.S.
from Southern Illinois Uni
versity at Carbondale, 111.
An article she wrote about
mentally retarded children
on the primary level appeared
earlier this year in the New
Mexico School Review.
"We need teachers for ex
ceptional children very bad
ly," Miss Foltz said. "With
continuous training children
may become self-supporting
and perform simole, manual
tasks. Most live at home, but
some cities now have special
homes and workshops for
these people." f- ;
