Description The purpose of this study was to provide some initial research in four general areas of concern related to the mentally retarded in utah. The first and chief area of consideration was guardianship. The purpose here was to determine whether the parents of mentally retarded children, who were either residents or who had pre-admission status at the Utah State Training School, were interested in guardianship provisions for their children. A second area was sterilization. The purpose related to this subject was to elicit and analyze attitudes and opinions on the subject by the same above identified parents. The other two areas which were considered in the study were marriage of the mentally retarded, and the quality of care provided by the Utah State Training School for the mentally retarded. The purpose for these two was also to obtain opinions and attitudes from the parents.
