Discussed are the following four observable environments of the future in terms of the developmental disabilities movement: the systems and organizational environment; the socio-political environment; the technological environment; and the economic environment. Included are suggestions for a strategy for viewing future issues, such as sharpening communication skills, communicating needs to appropriate audiences, and developing a management approach to the provision of services for the developmentally disabled.
