Conceptual and Psychometric Concerns about the 1992 AAMR Definition of Mental Retardation.
MacMillan, Donald L.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n3 p325-35 Nov 1993
This paper examines the extent to which the 1992 American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR) definition of mental retardation provides decision rules to guide clinicians and researchers in classification efforts. The paper examines concerns about the intelligence quotient criterion, the adaptive skill areas, and proposed differentiation by levels of needed supports. (Author/JDD)
