Abstract

The study evaluated the quality and costs of services for 16 young adults with dual. sensory impairments and mental retardation before and during their placement at a specialist community-based residential further education facility. The results indicated that, overall, both the quality and costs of services were higher than in previous placements. However, there were wide variations among clients on all the dimensions studied, and there was no overall relationship between the costs and quality of services.
