Luckasson, Ruth; And Others
Mental Retardation, v34 n4 p247-53 Aug 1996
This paper responds to criticisms concerning the applicability of the 1992 American Association on Mental Retardation definition of mental retardation to preschool children. Criticisms focusing on the elimination of classification levels, limited relevance of adaptive behavior areas, and difficulties delineating kinds and intensities of supports are addressed, and the underlying model is defended.
