Toward a More Acceptable Terminology in Mental Retardation.
Blatt, Burton
Mental Retardation, v32 n1 p69-70 Feb 1994
This reprint (from a 1961 article) and excerpt (from a 1977 paper) recommend definitions of various terms in the field of mental retardation, such as subaverage, organic retardation, and functional retardation and argue that incidence and prevalence estimates of mental retardation vary so remarkably and change so frequently to fit certain pragmatic needs that they are relatively unhelpful.
