Critical Analysis of the 1992 AAMR Definition: Implications for School Psychology.
Gresham, Frank M.; And Others
School Psychology Quarterly, v10 n1 p1-19 Spr 1995
The 1992 definition of mental retardation recently written by the American Association on Mental Retardation replaces designated levels with intensities of needed supports to facilitate an individual's functioning across environments. This article critically analyzes this new definition and discusses several challenges it presents to school psychologists in assessing and classifying intelligence, adaptive behavior, and intensities of needed supports.
