The Dignity of Humanity Is Not a Scientific Concept.
Gelb, Steven A.
Mental Retardation, v40 n1 p55-56 Feb 2002
This commentary discusses whether the American Association on Mental Retardation should change its name. It argues that the term "mental retardation" has become a potent, utterly dismissive invective in the mouths of adults and school children and should be replaced with the term "intellectual disability".
