Several Issues in Mental Retardation: A Needed Perspective? Working Paper No. 81.
Browning, Philip L.
The author expresses concern about potentially damaging effects to mentally retarded persons from deinstitutionalization and normalization practices. Cited are the public's lack of awareness and the professionals' misplaced emphasis on researching the public attitude rather than improving the retardates' training. It is explained that there is a need to examine the impact of normalization and deinstitutionalization policies on the feelings and behavior of retarded persons. (CL)
