Taylor, Steven J.
Journal of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps (JASH), v13 n1 p41-53 Spr 1988
This critical analysis of least restrictive environment (LRE) for the developmentally disabled reviews the origins and operationalization of LRE in terms of a continuum of residential, educational, and vocational services. Pitfalls in LRE, especially for severely disabled persons, are enumerated and commitment to the contrasting principle of community integration advocated. (Author/VW)
