On the Definition and Classification of Mental Retardation.
Zigler, Edward; And Others
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v89 n3 p215-30 Nov 1984
A classification system of mental retardation is proposed based on etiology and IQs at least two standard deviations below the population mean. Social competence and performance capabilities of individuals with subaverage IQs are removed from definitional status and given prominence as correlates of class membership. (Author/CL)
