Knobbe, Carol A.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n5 p533-41 Mar 1995
A benefit-cost analysis was conducted to compare services for 11 individuals with severe mental retardation and challenging behaviors who had been moved from an institution to a community setting. Overall, the community-based program costs represented slight public savings over costs in the state institution. Less quantifiable benefits were also found. (Author/DB)
