Abstract

ABSTRACT. The subjects of this study were 22‐year‐old adults who had attended a special school for children with mental handicap. Since leaving school, they had dropped out of the mental handicap services. The subjects' leisure activities were compared with peers who had always attended regular classes as children. The subjects engaged in fewer types of activities than the comparisons and had fewer activities that involved interpersonal relations, especially with non‐family peers. The size of these differences was influenced by marital status.
