Of "Normalization," Lifestyles, The Special Olympics, Deinstitutionalization, Mainstreaming, Integration, and Cabbages and Kings.
Wolfenberger, Wolf
Mental Retardation, v33 n2 p128-31 Apr 1995
This commentary refutes use of segregation and institutionalization as a legitimate lifestyle strategy for individuals with mental retardation. It contends that advocates of this strategy have never justified its use with valid research and calls for integration that is carefully parsed into its various expressions, the highest form being valued social participation in valued activities and valued settings.
