Thurlow, Martha L.; And Others
The monograph reviews literature on issues related to deinstitutionalization and residential services for the developmentally disabled. Six main topics are addressed in the review (sample subtopics in parentheses): planning for deinstitutionalization (use of institutional facilities no longer in operation, training and job placement of displaced institutional staff, coordinating needed community services with residential programs); financial considerations (resources for starting and operating residential programs); individualized program planning and evaluation (evaluating the resident's readiness for community placement, planning the transfer of individuals from institutions to community residences); regulatory issues (licensing and regulation of residential programs); legal considerations (guardianship laws and services); and community services (leisure time and recreation programs, public transportation, employment opportunities, respite care).
