Education of the Backward Child: By David Kennedy-Fraser, M.A., B.Sc., F.R.S.E. (University of London Press Ltd., 1932. Pp. 254. Price 6 s.)

Review by:
G. Lewis

This book gives some valuable information about methods of teaching the backward child. It begins with an interesting chapter on 'What is the Backward Child?' in which mental tests are discussed, but it is to be regretted that here no mention is made of a detailed psychological examination of the child, nor of the possibility of the backwardness being due to some psychological 'inhibition', which can be better helped by psychological treatment than by mental testing.

This chapter is followed by others dealing with different school subjects. The last, 'The Teacher', gives a glimpse of the difficulties of teaching backward children and of the great patience, interest and enthusiasm that are necessary for such teachers.
