The Identification of Problem Areas in the Establishment and Maintenance of Community Residential Facilities for the Developmentally Disabled. Working Paper No. 64.
Tinsley, Diane J.; And Others
The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center in Mental Retardation (University of Oregon) conducted a short-term workshop in which participants divided into four small groups identified problem areas in the establishment and maintenance of community residential facilities for the developmentally disabled. Of the 27 workshop participants, 15 percent were currently operating a community residence for the developmentally disabled, 74 percent were state administrators involved in developing community residential programs, and 11 percent were involved in planning and program development at the national level. Most of the problem statements generated by the four groups were clustered into the following major problem areas: normalization, legislation, funding, standards, client programing, staff, evaluation, and supportive services. (The problem area and rank order of each problem statement generated by the four groups are appended.) (LS)
