Seltzer, Marsha Mailick; And Others
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v87 n1 p9-13 Jul 1982
Relationships between age and community adjustment were studied in 153 deinstitutionalized mentally retarded adults. Results showed that, although the two groups (18 to 54 and 55 and over) were comparable in IQ and recidivism rate, the older Ss lived in less autonomous residences in the community and functioned at a lower level.
