Seltzer, Marsha Mailick; Krauss, Marty Wyngaarden
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v89 n3 p257-66 Nov 1984
Current residential placement of 761 mentally retarded children in institutions during the late 1970s was described, and differences between children in institutions, in community settings, or with natural families were analyzed. Results indicated that the majority remained in institutions, and of those released, very few were placed in their natural home. (Author/CL)
