A Rationale for Services to the Mentally Retarded in Oregon.
Governor's Committee on Mental Retardation, Salem, OR.
A framework is proposed by which Oregon will provide professional leadership and funds to assist community programs for the mentally retarded. Following a rationale for such services, an inventory of existing programs in each of five designated state regions is presented. On maps of each region are indicated locations of various types of programs: classes for trainable (moderately) retarded, day care centers, activity centers, sheltered workshops, adult group homes, foster homes, and evaluation and planning efforts. Suggested legislation and recommendations for implementation are accompanied by statistical data on retarded Oregon residents currently participating in programs, and by cost estimates for each type of program.
