Abstract Recent years have witnessed a dramatic change in philosophy concerning appropriate educational and therapeutic provision for the moderately and severely retarded. A growing body of research evidence, supported by competent observation and experience, which confirms the deleterious effects of prolonged institutionalization of retarded children on their cognitive and linguistic functioning and on their personal and social adjustment, is bringing about a transformation in community and professional attitudes. Both the philosophical stance which subscribes to a belief in the dignity and value of each individual, and pragmatic considerations which argue the social and economic advantages of promoting the growth of personal competencies and social and occupational skills, are leading to a re-orientation of services and facilities for the mentally retarded.
