Stancliffe, Roger J.; Abery, Brian H.; Springborg, Heidi; Elkin, Sarah
Mental Retardation, v38 n5 p407-21 Oct 2000
Levels of personal control exercised by 76 adults with mental retardation were contrasted by substitute decision-making status. Individuals with no guardian or conservator exercised more personal control than did those with a conservator, who exerted more personal control than those with guardians. Similar group differences were observed in self-determination competencies. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
