Managing the Mentally Retarded Through Interdisciplinary Action.
Balthazar, Earl E.; Stevens, Harvey A.
A philosophy of interdisciplinary management of the severely and profoundly regarded is described in the monograph which also includes reporting and evaluation processes. Ten clinical reports of an actual case are provided to demonstrate the adequacy of the multidisciplinary method. These reports assess the medical condition, psychological adjustment, and biosocial status of an 8-year-old mongoloid girl. It was concluded by the authors that careful study and wise direction of program staffing committees can do much to alleviate some of the difficulties in residential management. (Author)
