The article focuses on the four major definitions of the International Council for Exceptional Children in the U.S. It is an organization which recognizes education as a major force in the successful rehabilitation of exceptional children. It is interested in the welfare of all exceptional children and youth, regardless of the causes or conditions underlying their exceptionality . It advances the principle that education of the exceptional child is an integral part of the total program of education. It is composed of individuals whose concern for their own welfare is submerged as they employ their abilities and skills in an organized effort to improve conditions for those they represents.
