This paper notes that terminology should promote respect for individuals with special needs. Definitions of "programing" and "teaching" are examined as they relate to persons with mental retardation, and it is argued that "programing" implies that these individuals can be manipulated to produce desired outcomes, whereas "teaching" implies a wider, richer, more promising activity.
