Two Responses to Hastings on Labeling.
Somogyi, Katherine M. M.; And Others
Mental Retardation, v33 n1 p63 Feb 1995
Two comments respond to an R. P. Hastings article on labeling of individuals with mental retardation. The first comment notes that diagnoses should not be used as labels but as identifications of disorders a person has. The second comment calls for people to come forth with synonyms for "mental retardation" that will not immediately be stigmatic. (JDD)
