"Functioning" from the Perspective of Production Supervisors.
Anderson-Levitt, Kathryn M.; Moerman, Daniel E.
Mental Retardation, v27 n5 p325-29 Oct 1989
Ethnographic research at 2 work activity centers for mentally retarded clients revealed that 16 production supervisors and 9 adult basic education teachers differed in their connotations of the term "functioning." Teachers defined functioning in narrowly academic terms, whereas supervisors defined it as a set of mental, physical, and moral traits related to job performance. (Author/JDD)
