Technology and Mentally Handicapped Individuals: Speculations on the Future.
Stanovich, Keith E.
The paper deals with the effects technological developments have on the lives of handicapped individuals, with emphasis on mental retardation. Speculations are made concerning how alternative technological models, such as the intermediate technology of E. Schumacher, may have a more positive impact on the lives of mentally retarded individuals than do the present technological systems of industrialized societies. (Author/SBH)
