Linden, Barbara E.; Forness, Steven R.
Education and Training of the Mentally Retarded, v21 n3 p157-64 Sep 1986
Follow-up study of mildly mentally retarded adults (N=40) hospitalized as adolescents for psychiatric disorders 10 years earlier rated 30 percent as having "fair to good" vocational and social adjustment; 42.5 percent indicated "marginal" adjustment. These ratings were poorer than those found for mentally retarded individuals without psychiatric disorders and nonretarded psychiatric patients. (CB)
