Effects of Deinstitutionalization on Adaptive Behavior of Mentally Retarded Adults.
Kleinberg, Joel; Galligan, Betsy
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n1 p21-27 Jul 1983
After 20 severely retarded adults were moved from an institution to small community residences, consistent improvement was found for language development, domestic activity, responsibility, and social interaction. Syntheses of other studies suggested that the improvement represents a manifestation of behavior already in the client's repertoire rather than new learning. (Author/CL)
