Campbell, Vincent A.; Bailey, Carolyn J.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v89 n1 p44-49 Jul 1984
Two systematic approaches (dimensional and typological) were used to develop classification systems. Each approach was evaluated on criteria applicable to general classification schemes and residential environments for retarded persons. A third, nested system was derived which satisfied rules for development and evaluative criteria. (Author/CL)
