Zetlin, Andrea G.; Turner, Jim L.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v89 n6 p570-79 May 1985
From ethnographic fieldnotes and life history interviews, basic descriptive data were presented that depict the adolescent life stage as it was recounted by 25 mildly retarded individuals and their parents. Comparison of adolescent adjustment patterns and current adult status revealed that the central concerns of adolscence remain problems for only some mildly retarded adults. (Author/CL)
