Programs for the Mentally Retarded of Denmark.
Bank-Mikkelsen, N. E.
The past segregation approach to the care of the mentally handicapped in Denmark is reviewed; the present normalization-integration approach, resulting in part from parents' associations and recognizing the basic rights of the retarded, is explained. A survey is then given of the Danish system, including services, facilities, budget, and regional organization. (JD)
