Personnel in the United States Army currently have 662,000 dependent children (Sample Survey, 1982), of which 140,000 reside in Europe (Worldwide Manpower, 1980). In addition, there are more than 50,000 children born each year to active duty Army personnel (Medical Summary Report, 1983). A conservative estimate is that 10% of these children are in need of services for handicapping conditions (Pless, Satter-white, & Van Vechten, 1976).
