We compared a group of people with learning disabilities who have been deinstitutionalized with a control group remaining in an institution on measures of adaptive and maladaptive behaviour, community living skills, social skills, and quality of life. In general, there was no change over 30 months for the control group. Changes for the experimental group were either not seen or were generally modest in scale, and tended to occur within 6 months of moving, the measures staying relatively stable thereafter. Implications for detailed examination of the effects of deinstitutionalization were discussed.
