Case studies are used to illustrate a variety of scenarios involved retarded persons with positive and negative outcomes and future suggestions for handling their situations. The author asserts the value of the workshop movement in terms of diagnosis and rehabilitation in the vocational area as well acknowledging that it is more successful with the conforming and non-achieving populations than those who act-out.
