Towards a National Mental Retardation Manpower Model for Canada.
Linton, Thomas E.
The stated need for developing a national mental retardation manpower model for Canada is not the manpower shortages in mental retardation, but the unsound conceptual and functional approaches to the socialization and education of the mentally retarded. The report is divided into the four major areas investigated by a task force. First, the section on surveying existing training programs available for associate professionals and volunteer personnel includes preschool, home care, residential, and occupational vocational programs. The second section on recommending a training curriculum for associate professionals clarifies four diploma levels. Recommending improved methods for utilizing personnel in the field of mental retardation and allied developmental handicaps constitutes the third section. Topics covered are general rationale, implementation methods, programs for new workers and present staff members, professionals, and programs for volunteers. The fifth section consists of recommending a pattern of implementation indicating specific roles and responsibilities of local, provincial and national agencies. A summary of recommendations concludes the report. (CB)
