A progress report on Australian practice and research in intellectual handicap
*Subscription may be required
The report summarizes conditions in Australia relevant to understanding the development of service-delivery systems and research in intellectual handicap. Then the main areas of applied research are reviewed—early intervention, service delivery to metropolitan and isolated communities, and intervention studies with school-age children and adults. The majority of work in Australia is either derivative or parallels that of the U.S.A. and U.K., and, in particular, reflects common concerns with the achievement of normalization and the development of more effective compensatory programmes.
