Most people know at least one family that
includes a handicapped child, either natural
Clackamas Community College offers an
extensive three-term curriculum in Excep
tional Parent/Child Studies. Included are
theoretical instruction and professionally
supervised in-home experience for individuals
engaged in caring for learning impaired/
Jan Hickman, instructor and clinical pro
gram supervisor, coordinates a training pro
gram for parents of learning handicapped
children that allows them to receive instruc
tion in their own homes.
Hickman will direct the class Saturdays
between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Orchard Hall.
Hickman feels that this special education is
necessary for parents to effectively meet the
demanding and unique needs of a learning
Much of a child's learning takes place
between birth and three years of age. Fail
ure to provide for this early learning robs
the child of a basis for later development.
When special educational programs are con
ducted in the home of the young handi
capped child, and when materials and activi
ties available in the home are used as teach
ing materials, the child responds by making
more rapid progress than can be achieved by
working with the child in a less familiar
One advantage of the program is that the
attending child will receive beneficial respon

can benefit from the expert individual at

compensate for his learning disabilities.
After completing these special education
programs, parents, by combining their know

acquired through the Exceptional Parent/
Child Studies programs, can serve as con

Educated parents can apply their know
ledge to help any other children they will
parent. They will also be able to serve as
consultants to other parents of learning

Director Keith Stroup. The money, wrapped
in rubber bands, was divided into seven
packs of fifty $20 bills and three packs of
The November issue's article went on to
say, "The man entered NORML offices early
in the afternoon and asked Stroup for some
literature on the organization. Stroup left
his first-floor office and went to the base
ment for the information.
When he returned, the man was waiting
by the front door. Stroup gave the man the
literature. The man then said, "By the way,
I left you a donation in your briefcase."
"How much?" asked Stroup.
"Ten thousand dollars," said the man.
Stroup, thinking the donation figure was
a joke, thanked the man and returned to his
office. In his briefcase was $10,000 in cash
and a note saying it was from the "Confeder
