The document presents an international directory of mental retardation resources. International organizations pertaining to the mentally retarded are listed and described, including those affiliated with the United Nations, intergovernmental agencies, nongovernmental organizations, international coordinating agencies, and regional nongovernmental organizations. The bulk of the directory consists of reports from 88 individual countries. These reports provide such information (where applicable) as a brief sketch of the country; medical and educational policy; government agencies with mental retardation responsibility; voluntary organizations; publications and journals; other information for visitors; and brief descriptions of mental retardation program areas (including diagnosis, education, work training and employement, medical services, residential care, financial assistance, recreation, research, planning, and personnel training).
