They can be found in every classroom of every school district in the United States. They are a special group of children considered to be a high-risk population. They have their own problems that can cause minor to severe psychological wounds. They are children of alcoholics (COA's), and their lives are affected by alcoholism's "hidden curriculum" (Gress, 1988, p. 18), which indicates that these students have a set of hidden problems that often go unnoticed and unserved. Because so many students are affected, schools are obligated to provide a special curriculum to meet the needs of this vast population.
