Fraenkel, William A.
Meeting at Massachusetts state residential schools and centers for the mentally handicapped, the 15-man committee reviewed recommendations originally appearing in Massachusetts Plans for Its Retarded, A 10-Year Plan (1966). Forty-seven final recommendations for improving residential facilities for the retarded resulted; suggestions made for their implementation involved either administrative measures, internal balancing of staff, or new funds or legislation. Formation of a standing committee on improvement of residential schools was proposed. The philosophy and procedures of the committee are presented; recommendations and suggestions are listed. (JD)
