This publication is a compilation of papers presented at the Conference on Handicapped Children in Michigan, conducted from February 20 to 21, 1961, under the auspices of the Michigan Crippled Children Commission in collaboration with the Division of Maternal and Child Health of the Michigan Department of Health. The conference was conducted primarily to provide information needed by health officers and supervisory or senior nurses in handling problems arising in their local health units of Michigan.

Several introductory papers deal with the handicapped as a public health problem and point out current problems and the scope and availability of services in the State of Michigan. The majority of papers are concerned with problems which result from cleft lip and cleft palate, prevention of prematurity through public health programs, and proper care of premature infants. The final group of papers concerns blindness, sight conservation, and a symposium on reading readiness.
