Aids--Intellectual Aids: A Conceptual Investigation.
The paper describes ways in which tools, or aids, can promote the interaction of mentally retarded persons with their environment. A classification of these aids is proposed according to psychological characteristics (such as senses, intelligence, knowledge, decision making, and action) as well as types of interaction (such as comprehension, communication, and physical influences). Intellectual aids are discussed in terms of space, time, quality, quantity, causes, and the importance of their accessibility for intellectually handicapped persons. (CL)
