Goddard (1866-1957) translated it into English. It was revised several times before the revision by Lewis Terman at Stanford University, which resulted in the name being changed to the Stanford-Binet intelligence scale. In 1911, Goddard helped to draft the first law in the United States requing that blind, deaf, and intellectually disabled children receive special education in the public school system. He was the director of research at the Vineland Training School for Feeble-Minded Girls and Boys from 1906 to 1918. Scarce.
