The Child with Retardation Today--The Adult of Tomorrow. A Symposium Commemorating the International Year of the Child (San Juan, Puerto Rico, November 12-16, 1979).
International League of Societies for the Mentally Handicapped, Brussels (Belgium).; National Association for Retarded Citizens, Arlington, TX. Research and Demonstration Inst.
Excerpts are given of presentations and discussion from the 1979 Puerto Rico conference on international developments in mental retardation. R. Dybwad ("The Child with Retardation Today--The Adult of Tomorrow") briefly reviews international issues, including self advocacy and problems of world poverty and malnutrition. M. de Trias lists ideal elements in intervention for families ("The Family--Growing Together"). In "Education for Living," L. Brown describes key elements in education for the handicapped, including zero rejection, a normal ratio between those with handicaps and those without, and natural environments. W. Eigner predicts the development of programs--especially industrial ones--for adult handicapped persons. B. Speake examines the work environment of the adult with retardation. A final paper, by J. Dickey, et al., presents quotes and thoughts from 30 persons with mental retardation on such topics as segregation, powerlessness, and self advocacy. (CL)
