ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the research which aims to explain the inadequacy among mentaly retarded children and adults despite that 80% of them have no detectable abnormality of the central nervous system. The research, conducted by University of Wisconsin psychologists Rick Herber and Howard Garber, involves 40 retarded black mothers with newborn babies who were assigned randomly to two groups, wherein the mothers in one group were given job training and taught homemaking and baby care. It adds that the children in the same group were sent to universities and were taken cared of by infant stimulation teachers. Furthermore, the result shows that children in the stimulated group have become distinctly superior to children in the group that stayed at home.
