The article comments on the impact of government aid to special education on the operation of a private program of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). The author stated that the council must be ready to confront the questions concerning the increasing federal aid and the growing effect of the massive influx of public aid and federal influence. With the growing reliance of the council's budget on government, the members of the council must stop and reflect that CEC is a private association of interested people who have the intention of fostering their national and personal objectives and goals for the education of handicapped and gifted children. It is possible this aid will influence the objectives and procedures for upcoming projects of the new council's program.
