Intellectual Disabilities: Have We Lost Our Senses?
Lower, Timothy A.
Mental Retardation, v37 n6 p498-503 Dec 1999
This article reviews scientific definitions and social implications of "intelligence" in the context of plans of the American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR) to rename their organization and the diagnostic category to "intellectual disabilities". It is felt that such a change would associate the AAMR with those intelligence researchers who claim that this population negatively impacts social policy. (Contains references.) (DB)
