Grimes, Susan K.; Vitello, Stanley J.
Mental Retardation, v28 n4 p219-25 Aug 1990
The attitudes of 32 families who had indicated strong opposition to community placement of their relative with mental retardation were evaluated 3 to 7 years after deinstitutionalization. Postplacement data revealed a significant change in the direction of more positive attitudes toward deinstitutionalization but continuing concern about inadequate community services. (Author/DB)
