Maguire, Kenneth B.; Piersel, Wayne C.
Mental Retardation, v30 n4 p227-32 Aug 1992
A national survey of 147 institutions for individuals with mental retardation found that 68 percent of the institutions had used at least 1 of 3 specified treatment options to deal with behavior problems. Results indicated that, in comparison to in-house behavior shaping units and mobile intensive treatment teams, specialized outside referral agencies appeared less successful. (JDD)
