The White House Conference of 1930, recognizing the importance of greater coordination of forces related to the education of exceptional children, urged that the United States Office of Education perform the services of a coordinating agency in this respect. The Office of Education, while ready to accept the responsibility, has been hampered by lack of adequate financial provisions with which to carry on a suitable program. However, in the year 1934-35 special funds were made available through which an exploratory conference on the problem could be realized. Fifteen educational, psychological, and medical leaders, representing the eight groups of exceptional children, met in Washington on November 1 and 2, 1934, at the call of the Commissioner of Education to consider the possibilities of furthering a cooperative program for all groups concerned. A general summary of the conference and the contribution made by each member to its deliberations are the content of this report. (Contains 2 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.].
