The Quality of Day Care Provision to Encourage the Transition to Adulthood for Young Women with Learning Difficulties.
Perrins, Karen; Tarr, Jane
Research in Post-Compulsory Education, v3 n1 p93-109 1998
Case studies of young women with learning disabilities showed they increased practical living skills at a day center but had little autonomy in long-term life decisions and little opportunity for productive activity and social interaction. Low expectations of others and the segregated day center program hampered their ability to reach adult status and engendered dependency. (SK)
