Wehmeyer, Michael L.
Mental Retardation, v36 n1 p44-51 Feb 1998
A national survey (N=1,218) examining use of assistive technology by people with mental retardation found that, in four of five areas (mobility, hearing/vision, communication, home adaptation, environmental control), the percentage of individuals who used assistive devices was under 10%, although many more individuals would likely benefit from such devices.
