Mental Retardation: Readings and Resources.
Rothstein, Jerome H., Ed.
Fifty-two readings on mental retardation, most of which were published between 1965 and 1970, are grouped by topic: general considerations, assessment and diagnosis, learning theory, early childhood education, school programs for the educable and the trainable, secondary school programs, community day care programs, programs for adults, institutional care, communicative skills, parent counseling, state and local program organization and administration, research, and future prospects. Readings and references are balanced to be of interest to educators, psychologists, rehabilitation counselors, medical personnel, and social scientists and to provide sources of information for parents and parent groups. Vocabulary and contents are geared to upper-division and graduate levels of instruction, and readings are correlated with a number of basic texts. Brief section introductions provide historical background and discuss related problems and articles. Supplementary resource tables and charts complement and amplify many readings. Resource materials contained in appendixes include lists of organizations, surveys of literature, journals, textbooks, books for parents and about retarded individuals, specialized bibliographies, federal agency publications, films, and film sources.
