Séguin favored compassion and understanding in dealing with the mentally retarded, and believed that their condition could be remedied or at least alleviated. Believing mental retardation a neurological condition, he advocated a regimen of physical exercise and sensory stimulation, accompanied by vocational training. He wrote several books, including Idiocy: Its Treatment by the Physiological Method (1866). Many of his physical exercises are still used in special education courses. Fine condition.
