Pioneer special-educator Sally Smith, 78

Sally Smith, who in 1967 founded a school for children with learning disabilities after trying to help for her own son, passed away over the weekend. "She had found that through art and through drama, through activity, her child could learn a tremendous amount of information, both academic and content-related," said Neela Seldin, who now heads the elementary side of the Washington, D.C., Lab School that Smith founded.
