dc.description.abstractPresent Mental Health-Mental Retardation Programs de-emphasize institutional containment and attempt to place moderately and mildly retarded individuals in the normal environment on a self-supportive basis. To accomplish this they need to acquire a knowledge of the various transportation modes available to them in the community. This study identifies the travel problems experienced by the educable retarded and the instruction necessary for improving their mobility and environmental awareness. Inadequate travel training and institutional isolation affects the retarded individuals awareness of job, shopping and recreational opportunities. Institutional priorities should be re-evaluated and more emphasis placed on travel training programs.en
