Cone, Alicia A.
Mental Retardation, v39 n1 p1-10 Feb 2001
A telephone survey examined self-reported training needs of 90 advisors to self-advocacy groups for people with mental retardation. Major findings addressed desired training topics, preferred training formats, hours and frequency of training, how training needs change, and differences in training based on advisor demographic data. Analysis suggests that training opportunities for advisors need to be time-sensitive, inexpensive, and interactive. (Contains references.) (DB)
