Project MEMPHIS (Memphis Educational Model Providing Handicapped Infant Service) now in its fourth year of operation at Memphis State University, is fast earning international attention because of its successes with exceptional children. Since its inception in 1970, Project MEMPHIS has opened its doors to children with learning disabilities living in their natural homes. The main goals of the project include helping with legal adoption, preventing children from being placed in institutions, returning the child to his natural home or placing him in a regular school class.
