with Mental Retardation

  title={with Mental Retardation},
  author={Henry T. Sachs and Rowland P. Barrett},
This bibliography lists 94 references which: (1) describe fiscal issues in residential services in the mental retardation/developmental disabilities and related fields, or (2) offer a theoretical perspective on doing research in these areas. The bibliography reviews studies which compare the cost of community-based services with the cost of institutional services, and studies which examine costs associated with a particular approach to community services. To describe these primary references, a…

Epidemiology of mental retardation in children
Mental retardation (MR) in children is a heterogeneous group of disorders with varied causes. This article describes well-known causes of MR and epidemiologically established risk factors.
A Matched Comparison Study of Cost-Effectiveness: Institutionalized and Deinstitutionalized People
Seventy people with mental retardation who had moved from a large state institution to small community living arrangements were matched with 70 people who remained at the same institution. They were
Review of recent epidemiological studies of mental retardation: prevalence, associated disorders, and etiology.
A wide range of disorders were found to be associated with mental retardation, and prenatal factors were implicated about twice as often as peri- or postnatal factors.

The research reported here supports the hypothesis that hospitalization of the mentally ill is, except for emergencies, less effective than community-based treatment of approximately equal cost.
Pennsylvania's domiciliary care experiment: II. Cost-benefit implications.
An analysis of medical care and social support service utilization profiles indicated that program savings exceeded program cost for five of the six study subsamples; the one exception was the mental retardation cohort residing in a community setting at pretest.
Maltreatment in psychiatrically hospitalized children and adolescents with developmental disabilities: prevalence and correlates.
Regression analysis indicated that interactions between high levels of social functioning and disruptive/oppositional behaviors and younger age in children, and low level of social support and increased anger reactivity in mothers, were most predictive of mothers' use of severe disciplinary practices.
Alternative to mental hospital treatment. II. Economic benefit-cost analysis.
Considering all the forms of benefits and costs that the authors were able to derive in monetary terms, the experimental program provided both additional benefits and additional costs as compared with the conventional treatment.
10. Issues in designing a national program of long-term care benefits.
This paper discusses a major policy area in long-term care--the design of a comprehensive national program of long- term care benefits--for which a broad base of information is needed, and two proposals introduced in the 93rd Congress illustrate current approaches.
Graded exercise testing of mentally retarded adults: a study of feasibility.
This study sought to develop a protocol that would allow maximal aerobic testing (VO2max) of mentally retarded adults in the laboratory and the R values obtained were within an acceptable range for valid maximal data.
