Rehabilitation of Mentally Retarded Children through Environmental Protection
In the present study an attempt has been made to give training to mentally retarded children in paper bag making. Five mentally retarded children having the mental age of 6 – 7 years were selected for the above purpose from Jodhpur city. It was hypothesized that the children will be able to make paper bags as taught by the vocational trainer. It was a co-relational type of research. A comparison of before and after training revealed the degree of change in the children’s performance. Material used in the present study were newspaper and gum. After training a remarkable improvement was seen in the children’s performance. As the trials increased, the number of errors decreased. Results also reveal that persons with mental retardation can be engaged in economically useful activities if systematic training and guidance is given.
