A Multidimensional Model of Mental Retardation: Impairment, Subnormal Behavior, Role Failures, and Socially Constructed Retardation.
St. Claire, Lindsay
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v94 n1 p88-96 Jul 1989
A multidimensional model of mental retardation is proposed, based on medical, behavioral, and social dimensions. The model's theoretical underpinning emphasizes that an individual might be retarded in one or a combination of senses. The model introduces a conception of socially constructed retardation and suggests methods for operationalizing and alleviating mental retardation. (Author/JDD)
