Abstract

Rehabilitation outcomes of persons with mild/moderate mental retardation were analyzed. Seven variables were used to predict one dichotomous and one continuous criterion variable: work status at closure and level of income, respectively. Findings indicated that consumers with mild/moderate mental retardation who received job placement services achieved competitive jobs at a significantly greater rate than those who did not. Results are presented for each criterion variable and the implications of the findings for service and research are discussed.
