Allen County Association for the Retarded, Fort Wayne, IN.
Presented is the final report on the Behavior Recycling Program (BRP) which was designed to return socially maladjusted mentally retarded adolescents to public school classes. It is explained that behavior change data was gathered through a series of questionnaires given to students, teachers, probation officers, and parents. The author suggests eight recommendations for future programs and concludes that 70 percent of all socially maladjusted mentally retarded juveniles can be returned to public school classes within a 12-month period through an out-of-school team teaching approach.
