Rehabilitation Research with the Mentally Retarded: A Consideration for Theory. Working Paper No. 40.
Browning, Philip L.
Discussed are theoretical considerations related to prognostic rehabilitation research with the adult mentally retarded. Noted is the lack of a unifying theory of rehabilitation, and reviewed are two approaches to theory building (deductive and inductive). Deductive functions are defined as formulating and testing hypotheses from already existing research, while inductive is seen to propose and test hypotheses based on a more neuristic or exploratory approach.
