Guide for Identifying Children with Disabilities.
Chapter 6 in 'Disabled Village Children' Hesperian

This chapter has a chart, 7 pages long, to help you find out what disability a child possibly has.

In the first column of the chart, we list the more noticeable signs of different disabilities.
Some of these signs are found in more than one disability. So in the second column we
add other signs that can help you tell apart similar disabilities. The third column names the
disability or disabilities that are most likely to have these signs. And the fourth column gives
the page numbers where you should look in this book. (Where it says WTND and then a
number, this refers to the page in Where There Is No Doctor.)
