From Rights to Realities: Advocacy by and for Retarded People in the 1980's.
Herr, Stanley S.
The booklet discusses the legal rights of the retarded focusing on the question of advocacy. A number of issues relating to setting priorities in legal services programs are examined with respect to the retarded. Resources for legal advocacy for the retarded are listed and described, including community legal services programs, state advocacy systems, consumer organizations, the Legal Services Corporation, and state bar associations and law schools. Also considered are the executive responses to the "mental retardation crisis" and the congress and state legislatures as new champions for the disabled. (DLS)
