Dear Mr. President:
I have the honor to transmit the first report of the President's Committee on Mental Retardation.
During its first year, the Committee has charted the progress made in our nationwide effort to combat mental retardation and identified directions in which that effort must move in the immediate future in order to maintain its momentum and accomplishment.
This report will be followed by papers describing in detail the state of various aspects of mental retardation programming, and identifying trends and areas in which needs exist and further study is indicated.
The Committee's widely representative citizen membership enabled it to draw upon the information, experience and resource support of government and private organizations in charting fresh approaches to mental retardation needs.
The Committee is deeply grateful for your continuing interest, encouragement and guidance.
John W. Gardner
