Socio-Behavioral Study Center for Mental Retardation. Terminal Progress Report.
Pacific State Hospital, Pomona, CA.
The terminal progress report of the Socio-Behavioral Study Center for Mental Retardation summarizes research activities and results of the Center's three major programs. The Community Research Program studied the epidemiological aspects of mental retardation in the community, including identification and classification of retardates, investigation of prevalence, and delineation of the natural history of retardation in the community, including interactions with the family, neighborhood, and community agencies. The Hospital Research Program studied such problems as use of medications, morbidity and mortality rates, prevalence of seizures, frequency of ward movements, and social and organic factors affecting rehabilitation and prognosis. The Computer Support Program developed necessary computer programs for data analyses in connection with the two other program areas. An extensive list of publications by the Center's staff concludes the report. (KW)
