REVIEWS:





"Some painful but compelling instruction on how to adjust emotionally to the sometimes calamitous problem of the mentally retarded child is conveyed with courageous candor and dramatic simplicity in Stanley Kramer's new film,
'A Child Is Waiting'. .... We must be thankful that what might have been harrowing and even distasteful beyond words to behold comes out as a forthright, moving documentation of most unfortunate but hopeful youngsters in a school. From the graphic accounts of how their teachers treat them and train them, how the rule of firm, realistic and unemotional discipline is preserved,
and from the simplifications of theory that appear in the
dialogue, one should learn a great deal from this picture--all of
which should be helpful and give hope."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; February 14, 1963
