For a brief introduction, see the article on "Mental Retardation" in Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling.
To located journal articles on your topic, I also recommend these periodical databases --
- ATLA Religion Index (use the subject "church work with with people with mental disabilities")
- Catholic Periodical and Literature Index (use the subject "church work with the mentally handicapped")
- Christian Periodical Index (try two searches -- "mental disabilities" and "mental retardation"
Writings by or about Jean Vanier's ministry in the Arche community may also interest you. HOLLIS Catalog lists a number of titles at Harvard.
