The clinic in the past two years has been a decided success and the observation has been made that children whose defects were remedied during the sum mer months have made more rapid progress than those who had to enter school under these health handicaps. The following statement, cit ing the Importance of immediate attention to this matter, has also been mailed to the parents: Every child should enter school as free as possible from physical defecU. A child’s school’ pro gress is Influenced largely by his physical condition. If he is han dicapped by one or more physical defects, his schooling may be in terrupted by Illnesses an4 npt infrequently such children have to repeat the first grade. This is very discouraging to the . child, and often leads him to _belleve that he is different from other children because he cannot keep up with them. On the other hand, if a child enters school in good condition and free from de fects, he has a much better chance for normal progress and for Jiapplness in his contacts with other children.
