Opinions were received from over 73 percent of superintendents on feasibility of deinstitutionalization cost-benefit issues, service perspectives, and support for deinstitutionalization. Most respondents believed parents are less than supportive of deinstitutionalization. Superintendents were pessimistic about acceptance of institutional population into society.
