  • Blonde and sturdy, Robin is four when he first enrolls in a regular school program under Public Law 94-142 which guarantees him a free public school education. Activities which are easy for other kids are enormously difficult for him, such as using a swing or learning to clap his hands. He is withdrawn but the staff perseveres, pushing through his resistance. His teachers, finding him a real challenge, become deeply committed to helping him. He appears far happier and less remote than when he first came to school. When it is time for him to move on to another school, his teachers are sad to see him go.
