Transition Summary, 1986.
Transition Summary, Mar 1986
Two articles examine issues of transition for people with mental retardation. The first article describes how the Ohio Association for Retarded Citizens (ARC) developed a parent-based project to monitor the quality of residential placements. The project was intended to assess both the strengths and weaknesses of community residential programs, to provide statewide feedback on service delivery, to develop a method by which citizens and service providers can work together to improve services, and to ensure individuals with retardation the opportunity to live in community settings which accommodate their individual needs with a minimum of restriction. The second article reviews one parent's experiences with her retarded daughter's struggles for independence. (CL)
