Abstract: Adult persons with mental retardation have the same basic needs as other persons. They have the potential to benefit from counseling intervention if the counselor: (a) considers the basic needs, limitations, and assets these persons bring to the counseling interaction; and (b) selects an appropriate counseling method. A conceptual model for providing counseling services to adult mentally retarded persons is presented and described.
