Mr. and Mrs. John Dumas, Lois Everhart, Margaret Marquardt, and Millicent Osborn are clinicians. Students on campus who are specializing in this field of work are doing internship in class work. Many of those working with the children feel that the first need to be fulfilled is that of helping the individual make a better social adjustment. Each person is helped on an individual basis. Classes of intensified training meet twenty hours a week. Classes are divided into four groups: articulation, hearing, stuttering, and remedial reading assistance. Several clinicians serve as chaperones in Ronan Hall, where most of ihe 97 students live. The close relationship of living with the clinicians helps the students make a better adjustment to ihe new situation. One general assembly has been held for the purpose of getting acquainted and to provide an opportunity for verbal and other forms of expression.
