Preventing and Curing Mental Retardation by Behavioral Intervention: An Evaluation of Some Claims.
Spitz, Herman H.
Intelligence, v10 n3 p197-207 Jul-Sep 1986
This examination of several programs intended to raise intelligence and prevent or cure mental retardation fails to reveal any evidence that they are effective. In view of the cycle of optimism and disillusionment that pervades the history of this field, caution and restraint are recommended. (Author/LMO)
