MR 69: Toward Progress; The Story of a Decade. A Third Report by the President's Committee on Mental Retardation about Developments in the National Campaign to Overcome Mental Retardation.
President's Committee on Mental Retardation, Washington, DC.
The report by the President's Committee on Mental Retardation mentions the accomplishments of the last decade, including the beginning of national networks for diagnosis, a plan for services in each state, and advances in public awareness of all facets of mental retardation. The following programs are considered necessary: services must be brought to those in the most need (especially low income groups); recruitment and training programs for supportive workers must be developed; more imaginative use of resources is needed at all levels; more public-private partnerships in planning, services, and research are needed; basic research and its quick translation into services needs encouragement; and the needs of the retarded should be considered in future social and residential planning. Charts and graphs illustrating findings are included throughout. (JM)
