PERSPECTIVES IN MENTAL RETARDATION.
JORDAN, THOMAS E.
THIRTY-THREE ARTICLES ILLUSTRATE THE EDITOR'S FORMULATION OF ISSUES CONCERNING THE PROBLEM OF MENTAL RETARDATION--(1) THE TRIPARTITE (ONTOLOGICAL, FUNCTIONAL, AND EDOLOGICAL) NATURE OF RETARDATION, (2) THE NECESSITY TO MOVE BEYOND A SINGLE DISCIPLINE IN DEALING WITH RETARDATION, (3) THE NUMBER OF AGENCIES NOW INVOLVED IN STUDY AND CARE, AND (4) THE NEED FOR RESEARCH AND EXCHANGE BETWEEN DISCIPLINES. THE PAPERS ARE FURTHER SELECTED FOR HISTORICAL, CONTINUING, CROSS-DISCIPLINARY IMPORTANCE AND TO PROVIDE GREATER DISSEMINATION. THE 11-PART BOOK CONTAINS AN INTRODUCTION AND THREE ARTICLES ON EACH OF THREE TOPICS--THE DIMENSIONS OF RETARDATION, LANGUAGE, PSYCHODIAGNOSTICS, SOURCES OF MENTAL RETARDATION, PATTERNS OF DEVELOPMENT, THERAPEUTIC CONSIDERATIONS, INSTRUCTION, AND INDEPENDENT LIVING. THE ARTICLES CONTAIN NOTES AND REFERENCES. THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED BY SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY PRESS, CARBONDALE, ILLINOIS 62901, AND IS AVAILABLE FOR $8.00. (DF)
