Cluster analysis of social environment variables for 115 families with children (average age 12 years) in trainable mentally retarded classes revealed five distinctive patterns: cohesive; harmonious; control oriented, somewhat unharmonious; low disclosure, unharmonious; child oriented, expressive; and disadvantaged, low morale. Comparisons and ethnographic observations revealed significant differences in family characteristics and child adjustment. (Author/CL)
