Abstract

Leisure activities were examined for young adults with mild mental retardation. Some had disappeared from mental retardation services after leaving school; others were in adult day services. Peers without mental retardation (comparison subjects) were also included. Various leisure activities were combined using cluster analysis. Some adults with mental retardation and some comparison subjects were found in each of the 13 clusters obtained but proportions varied. Leisure patterns were strongly influenced by gender and marital status as well as mental retardation, except for one cluster, Socially Isolated, Impoverished, where there were more adults with mental retardation, irrespective of gender and marital status.
