The problems of diagnosis and prognosis of mental retardation are discussed and include the doctor parent interaction, its nature and consequences, and current outlooks as self-fulfilling prophecies. Aspects of educational programs treated are referral to available facilities, parent and child background, preschool programs, the retarded as teachers, education after preschool, evaluation of the preschool program by parents, teaching methods, administrative concerns, teacher preparedness, and teacher education. Attention is also given to the child's effect on the family: infanticide, institutional care, daily problems, adolescence and adulthood, care of the child upon the death of the parents, and effects on the parents and siblings.
