Normalization and the Assessment of Residences and Workshops by Mentally Handicapped Consumers.
Curtis, Charles K.
Checklists have been developed with which mildly or moderately mentally retarded people can assess the quality of services provided them in residences and workshops. Based on the normalization principle, the checklists include examination of residential factors (such as the building's external appearance, rules, degree of privacy, and use of community facilities by residents) as well as of workshops features (such as working conditions, relationships with staff, and preparation for community employment). Checklist items should be thoroughly explained before assessment is begun, and results should be considered in terms of implications for change. Nine references are listed and both checklists are appended. (CL)
