Factors Contributing to "Perfect Rating" and Accreditation of Illinois State D. D. Facilities.
Tremonti, Joseph B.; Reingruber, Muriel M.
The presentation deals with four of the factors that have made the Illinois Developmental Centers for the Retarded a success. The following four factors are discussed: (1) the philosophy that the developmentally disabled are individuals and members of society with rights and privileges due all citizens; (2) intensive staff development programs which are continuous throughout the entire career of an employee; (3) individual habilitation programs based on the concept of normalization; and (4) recognition that change must take place.
