People with mental disabilities; People with mental disabilities--Employment


Society's regard for the retarded has moved ahead since ancient times in so far as acceptance and concern for their well-being is of great importance at this time. These retarded individuals need more than tolerance and particular individuals in society must give leadership in this area of acceptance. This paper is concerned with employers in particular, and their attitude toward hiring the mentally retarded. The leadership of the Federal Government and the rehabilitation counselors are channels through which help might come toward achieving more positive employer realization of the work potential and contributions of the retarded.
