LoConto, David G.; Dodder, Richard A.
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v32 n2 p77-84 Jun 1997
People with developmental disabilities (n=781) living in institutional and community residential placements were asked what they would wish for if they had one wish. Results indicated individuals in state schools wished for more material goods and were more likely to want to move; wishes varied greatly by residential placement; and wish patterns may provide insight into the effects of deinstitutionalization.
