This study evaluated the skills of mentally retarded children in recognizing and drawing emotional facial expressions. The study group was made up of 38 mentally retarded students, including 12 girls and 26 boys, who were in three different educational settings: integrated education (mainstreaming program), attending a special lower class, and at a special training school. This research was conducted according to the survey model, and it was found that there was no significant difference between boys and girls in the skills of recognizing and drawing emotional facial expressions p < 0.05. It was also found that the children in integrated education were more successful in recognizing and drawing emotional facial expressions than were the other two groups.
