Naming, Defining, and Classifying in Mental Retardation.
Luckasson, Ruth; Reeve, Alya
Mental Retardation, v39 n1 p47-52 Feb 2001
This article examines recent discussion about changing the term "mental retardation" within the broader framework of three distinct processes: naming (terminology), defining, and classifying. The current status of each process is described, especially as represented in the 1992 American Association on Mental Retardation manual. Guiding questions to help evaluate proposed changes in naming, defining, or classifying are proposed. (Contains five references.) (Author/DB)
