The Outcome of Normalization: Strengthened Bonds between Handicapped Persons and Their Communities.
McCord, William T.
Education and Training of the Mentally Retarded, v18 n3 p153-57 Oct 1983
The principle of normalization is scrutinized from a traditional clinical perspective and is erroneously viewed as a "people-changing" intervention which attempts to make handicapped persons "normal." The usefulness of human service technology must be evaluated by its potential for strengthening the bonds between handicapped and nonhandicapped persons. (Author/CL)
